UCBA Fun Facts: Favorite reading place?

Question: What’s your Favorite place to read?

HeatherHeather Maloney, Library Director: On vacation….anywhere.

 

 

 

Michelle Michelle McKinney, Reference/Web Services Librarian: I like to read in bed or in my favorite lounge chair.

 

 

Kellie Kellie Tilton, Instructional Technologies Librarian: I prefer to read on vacation (a random dream vacation is one dedicated JUST to reading), but more often than not, I read in bed.

 

LaurenLauren Wahman, Instruction LibrarianVacation, couch, bed…just about anywhere except the car.

 

 

Rachel Rachel Lewis, Technical Services Manager: No favorite place, but I tend to read in my bed before I fall asleep.

 

 

TammyTammy Manger, Public Services Manager: I like to read in bed. That’s why I can’t make it through more than two pages.

 

 

ChrisChris Marshall, Public Services Assistant: Poolside in the summer is the best!

 

UCBA Fun Facts: One book or several?

Question: Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once?

HeatherHeather Maloney, Library Director: Several at once and lately not so much luck with finishing….

 

 

Michelle Michelle McKinney, Reference/Web Services Librarian: Accidentally re-reading books. I’ll borrow a book from the library and realize a few chapters in that I’ve read it before.

 

Kellie Kellie Tilton, Instructional Technologies Librarian: I TRY to read one at a time, but I’m easily enticed by new, shiny books.

 

 

LaurenLauren Wahman, Instruction LibrarianI’ve got a better shot at finishing it if I stick with one.

 

 

Rachel Rachel Lewis, Technical Services Manager: If I am in the mood for reading it will only be one book at a time.

 

 

TammyTammy Manger, Public Services Manager: I read one book at time. Otherwise I tend to get lost and find myself looking back in the book to figure out what I’ve already read.

 

ChrisChris Marshall, Public Services Assistant: I usually read just one book at time.  I can enjoy the characters more reading just one at a time.
