What about me?

Hello, all! I'm Allison and this is my blog for S524 - Adult Reader's Advisory. I am 23 years young, and in my last semester of IUPUI's SLIS program. I work part-time at Hammond Public Library in the Youth Services department. After I graduate I would like to go into Reference. This semester is going to be a rough one for me, as I am commuting from Northwest Indiana ("The Region") to Indianapolis twice a week. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, right?

I have little spare time, but when I do have some, I enjoy baking, crafting, reading, and spending time with my wonderful family, friends, and boyfriend. As for my interests in books, I like just about everything. I really enjoy memoirs. My interest in graphic novels peaked after reading Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi and Blankets by Craig Thompson. One of my favorite books is The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. No, I haven't seen the movie yet.

I'm looking forward to this class; nothing is better than learning more about the varieties of books.

Just for fun, this is my new best friend - My sister's dog, Sadie. I recently moved in with my sister and her husband, and Sadie keeps me company... and keeps me warm after she sneaks into my bed at night!
