Shelf Talk: The Seattle Public Library Blog.

image-of-girl-reading-courtesy-of-carl-alexander.jpegShelf Talk is one of two blogs created and maintained by the staff of The Seattle Public Library; the other one is our teen blog: Push to Talk.  This is our first post.    

Seattle loves its libraries. Four out of five Seattlites has a library card (what’s with you other fifth, anyway?), and our per capita library circulation is among the highest in the country. We’ve been ranked the nation’s most literate city several times; either we read a lot of books, or we buy a lot of books and pretend to read them. In either case, Shelf Talk is a blog aimed at serving our lively and diverse community of readers. Here you will find book reviews and discussions, topics of local interest and human interest, literary events and links to the world of readers here in the Queen/Jet/Emerald/Rainy City, and beyond.

Read any good books lately? Have any great ideas for things you’d like to see here? We invite you to share your own favorite reads and other enthusiasms by commenting here, or drop us a line, at shelftalk@spl.org.
