I sit in a large open meeting area and the people start to trickle in…all new faces to me. Quiet conversation. Stacks of books on tables and the eager eyes scanning the titles. I look to the computer and look up again and more chairs are filled with smiling teachers and librarians.
I am on the committee that chooses books for a popular list. We all know we are getting stacks of books to take with us and it is exciting! A room full of reading advocates is where I belong! These people are my tribe.
We use Google Docs for the committee which works really well considering the members are all over the state.
I came home with more than 50 books! They are beautiful! I cannot wait to dig in.
