Today is Monday, and the start of another work week. A long, full, exhausting work week lies ahead for me. I am an endlessly busy Teen Librarian This week I’ve got about 5 teen programs, a couple of outreach visits, and some time on the Reference Desk, oh and probably a meeting or 2 that I’ve forgotten about!
Reading at work!
I try to read at work as much as possible. I have a book I read on my lunch breaks. I try to have another ebook in progress to read when the Reference Desk is slow or when I’m waiting for a meeting to start. I try to take a print book with me to outreach visits, because if I don’t I’ll inevitably have down time in between classes or something.
I am almost always reading a book for a teen book club. I try to make this my lunch break book, but that doesn’t always happen. A lot of librarians run book clubs, and I know we read those books mostly on our own time.
Do you prefer print or ebooks?
Do you have a separate book you read just on breaks at work?
Are you the kind of person to sneak a few pages in while waiting for a training, meeting, or class to start?
