Avid Book Wyrm
Remember the scene in "Beauty and the Beast" where Beast shows her the library? I still want that library and have been collecting and, of course, reading books of all types just in case. Later I realized it would also come in handy in the event of a zombie apocalypse because you never know when you might want to read a good book or bonk a zombie on the head with one. (Don’t actually do that, you might hurt the book. I’m also being told I have to include a disclaimer that zombies aren’t real, and definitely don’t hit them with books because they don’t like that.) My tastes in books run the gamut from books I loved when I was a kid, to the book I just finished last night at 4:30 in the morning because I just couldn’t stop, which to be fair is most of the time. If you want to talk to me about books, just look for the woman in a nerdy shirt and wear a rosebud in your lapel. (Unless you’re a zombie. Then, you’re out of luck.)

From the towering presence of the Brachiosaurus (who could live for a hundred years!) to the tiny arms of a Tyrannosaurus Rex (that could bench press 400 pounds each), dinosaurs have been a favorite of children and adults alike since forever, really. And, if you're a fan of random facts like I am, then get ready because these books are full of random dinosaur facts!
The Book vs. Movie Debate
Updated 5 months ago
I know what you're thinking. "She works in a library, so of course she'll say the book was better." Right? Well... sometimes. Sometimes, the book is better than the movie ever could be, and other times the movie is just so wonderful that you wonder why the author didn't include that part in their book. Whether you've read the book years before the movie was even a thought, or only read it because of the movie, or didn't even know that this movie you love so much is based on a book, you have become a part of a very large debate between many different camps. But we're not going to get into that. Oh no. That, my friends, is a big can of worms that we don't have time for today. No, this list is just my opinion about which movies blow their books out of the water, hold their own, or go down in a blaze of shame and should possibly never ever be made into movies again. Ever.

Dragons, wizards, hobgoblins and beasties! I love them all, and I also enjoy pretending to be them. (Being a dragon is a lot harder than you'd think. My eyebrows never did grow back properly.) Whether you've always wanted to be a wizard, or a demigod, a werebeastie, or a tiny little green alien who lives in a swamp, this list might be for you, fellow fantasy fan!
I Thought I was a Teenage...

School, homework, chores, maybe an annoying sibling. Pimples, crushes and video games. You think it’s a normal, boring life until... You find out you’re not! You’re a wizard Harry! Or maybe you’re an elf, or a demigod, or something entirely different! This list might not help you muddle your way through whatever discovery you just made about yourself, but maybe reading about their troubles will ease your trials/tasks/homework from Odin.
