Years with Talking Books
Currently, the Brother Cadfael mysteries by Ellis Peters.
Have you ever faked reading a book?
Yes- before I learned to read for real, or when I wanted to look busy.
Best library memory:
RIF (Reading is Fun(damental)) Day in elementary school- our class would go to the school library and we were allowed to pick out a free book from a selection to keep.
First book you remember being read to you?
The Velveteen Rabbit.
What do you find most rewarding about working at Talking Books?
I love it when patrons or their contacts tell me how much they enjoy the books and hearing how they have really made a difference to people. I have always loved books, and it gives me a good feeling to know that we are providing a service where others who also love books can enjoy them, despite circumstances where they might otherwise be unable to do so.
