On the Way to the Library is a website and blog where readers, writers & doodlers can join in the path to publishing [from my desk (or yours)] to a shelf in the library, bookstore, hands of readers... So, please join me on my way to the library as I blog, re-blog, doodle, read, learn, snack and sniff some flowers. If you would like to contribute a post here, please send me an email.
