All about books

Book Bytes is a wonderful site designed by a woman who loves books. The site’s design has a non-professional appearance, but it’s easy to navigate, and her writing is clear and concise. Her introduction to the site describes what I wish I pursued, instead of becoming a software developer:

I’m a book person. I’ve spent a lot of my life reading and thinking about books. As a mom, I spent years reading aloud to my kid, teaching him to love words and books. As someone who’s always trying to make sense of the world, I use books to find out stuff and to think about and organize what I know. I became a librarian because I loved to put people together with the perfect books for them. As a librarian, I got to choose books for our collection (what fun to spend someone else’s money on books!), and show people the books that will help them.
