  1. I loved reading about Terrie. She is a prolific reader in so many genres and writes the best book reviews. This By the Book is great to get to know our friends in the library!

  2. I found it interesting that Terrie liked reading To Kill a Mockingbird. I had to read that in 9th grade and I never finished it…..hated the whole thing. Maybe I’ll have to try it again!

  3. These By the Books are very fun to read. I too loved To Kill A Mocking Bird, in fact I’m listening to the audio book right now just because it’s been awhile. Sissy Spacek is the reader and does a great job. Thanks for sharing Terrie and putting this together Nikki!

  4. I am with you, Terrie. How can we choose just three books? I didn’t know that Terrie had been a media clerk for 24 years. Wow!

    These are so fun! I’m feeling bad now that I hurried and filled out my questionnaire and didn’t give it the time and thought it deserved.

  6. The first Boxcar Children book was one of the first books my dad ever read to me as a child. Thanks for your years of service to our district.

  7. Terrie, you really know how to keep a library going! Thanks for sharing and reminding me of some books I love, too.

  8. Terrie, Thanks for sharing your very widely read and have a great knowledge of books! What fun.
