- Rosie Bear
As many of you know, this blog originated in 2013 as “The Library Lady and Rosie Bear”. While I wrote adult book reviews and web content, my lifelong friend and teddy bear Rosie, focused on children’s book reviews and acted as an adviser on all things blog related.
At this time, I am sad to announce Rosie’s retirement. At the age of 61, she feels it is time to explore her options. I can’t wait to see what fun plans this adventurous brown bear has in mind. Rosie’s parting words? “Read till your eye falls off.” Excellent advice for all.
As for the blog, it will continue without her (bearly) and in the future will be known as The Library Lady Writes. For a humorous look at the world in general, book reviews, travel tips and whatever else crosses my mind, please continue to read and follow. I’m grateful for those who have been with me all these years and hope to continue our acquaintance. Best to all!
The Library Lady
Library Lady: To the casual observer I am a wife and mother of four, a Mormon, a freelance writer, and a great lover of books.To those with a little more imagination, I am the best friend of Rosie Bear, who has been with me since I was four years old. There are two reasons for writing this blog.
1) As a freelance writer I create website copy, magazine articles, travel brochures and whatever else my clients request. In this space however – consider yourself warned – I am free to discuss whatever crosses my mind, be it the “Night of the Tarantula” (spider taking up residence in my underwear drawer), or the latest antics of my goofy hound, Lucy.
2) Did I mention that I LOVE books? I’m lucky enough to be a bookaholic who works in a public library! When I find a great book I want to share. Now I can.
Rosie: To the casual observer I am a stuffed bear with one eye and fur that is mostly rubbed off. To those with a bit more imagination, I am the best friend of the Library Lady. We have been reading together since we were little, and she asked me to help with her blog. I love well written, Beary beautiful children’s books, especially those about bears, and I’m happy to tell you about my favorites. My Motto: Read till your eye falls off!
Both of Us: We will alternate book reviews with, Life/Humor posts, and update this blog whenever we have something to say ( which is often). In the book review section we’ll talk about our current reads, or if nothing wonderful is happening in our reading life, we’ll review our favorites. The rest of the blog will be about life in general and the things that make us smile. Can’t wait to get started!
Here you will find the answers to many pertinent questions such as – What should I do when large spiders attack? How should I deal with lawn sharks, and, What is the truth about Gorilla Man? In addition you will become familiar with a variety of excellent reading materials, courtesy of book reviews by the Library Lady and her long time assistant Rosie Bear.
So wade in and enjoy. Comments are welcome and please feel free to share some of your own favorite books be they the children’s or adult variety. We will update this blog every week, and will alternate book reviews, with commentary about library stuff, and life in general.
