Meet Your Atascocita Staff: Kimberly

Name: Kimberly 
Title: Circulation Assistant
Time working at branch: 1 year, 6 months, and 29 days at the time of this writing.

I’m not sure I am a guru of any one genre. I am open to reading anything except science fiction and paperback romance novels.  Right now, I mostly read what my professors tell me to read.  When I do get the chance to read what I want, it is whatever is available on Hoopla or Overdrive. I prefer to listen to my books rather than to sit down and read them. I think this is because I spend so much time reading my class textbooks that I get tired of sitting.

SF Books People Claim to have Read

Today, io9 wrote a blog about "10 Books you Pretend to Have Read." Looking over the list, I realized that, while I've not pretended to read books that I have not actually read, there were several books out there I do need to read.  Lists like this are a good way to grasp the history of the genre, see what has changed, and what ideas we are still exploring.

Meet Your Atascocita Staff: Mary

Name: Mary

Title: Assistant Branch Librarian

Time working at branch: 13 yrs in June

1. I don't have a particular genre that is my "go-to" style. When I get the chance I read a little in horror, fantasy, some general fiction, young adult, and some children's books.

2. On my own time, I like to visit museums, botanical gardens, and historical locations. Basically, I like to travel and sight see. If I had the money, I would do this all of the time and travel further than just a day trip from Houston.
