Introduction

I am Leah White, a librarian in Chicago. I also live on twitter. I love my town and I seriously love libraries. I am also a 2012 Library Journal Mover & Shaker.

Likes: windy days, being near water, my pets Shinji and Huxley, beautiful sentences, my boyfriend’s bookstore, and partly-cloudy days in Autumn.

Dislikes: chain restaurants, drivers who honk at pedestrians, people who eat on the train, scratched records, and mean people who aren’t funny. If you’re going to be mean, at least be funny.

Enjoy my ramblings.
