It was my wife’s birthday on Monday so I missed out on the twitter chat this week so it’s nice to be able to have a recap 🙂 That sounded like an interesting chat about whether you need to be a reader to be a good RA. Obviously it’s always going to be helpful if you know the book someone is talking about and yet there are so many books that you could never have read them all. Therefore, I think you need to be able to make recommendations of things even if you haven’t read them. There are other ways to do this, eg people have already mentioned book reviews, or maybe just word of mouth from users, friends, and other librarians.
