Bentley Library Staff Picks

One of the benefits of working in a library is being surrounded by a staggering number of books and films, and while this does not mean that library staff get to spend our workdays reading and watching movies, most of us are avid consumers of all types of media in our personal lives.  Many of us participate in book clubs, our office conversations often revolve around what we’re reading and watching, and we will enthusiastically make book and movie recommendations to anyone who asks.

It’s in this spirit that we have been adding staff picks boards to Pinterest.  Right now you’ll find picks made by Liz, Donna and Amy, but more boards are on their way.  Here’s a sample of what you’ll find:


“If you’ve managed to escape hearing about David Sedaris or reading any of his books, start with this one. Do yourself a favor – the essays in this book are tear-inducingly funny.” / Liz, on Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris

“Wonderful novel about fate and friendship and another book that helped re-ignite my love for reading for enjoyment.” / Donna, on A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving

“The story of three friends whose lives are all in some way wrecked by the same woman – wonderful writing.” / Liz, on The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood
