Ready for Romance

By Kathryn Shaw, Manager of Collection Development Programs  

Staff Spotlight: Kim Collins

Kim and her older son have a reading pact. Whenever his English teacher assigns a book to read, Kim will read the same title at roughly the same time. They both enjoy this arrangement, formed when her son was in middle school, because it has evolved into their own small, unofficial book club. Kim’s son seems to now delve into the books more deeply, exploring their central ideas, themes, and literary elements. The shared reading also helps create discussion between them and the rest of the family and provides a wonderful way to connect.
