Well done Debbie, given the frantic pace of the chats we’ve had so far it isn’t easy to keep up with all of the strands of the conversation. I enjoyed your reflection for this reason as it brought the issues back into focus for me.
I especially found the discussion about whether you need to be a reader in order to be a good RA interesting – I just can’t imagine why you would be an RA at all unless you were a reader! The motivation escapes me – I love sharing conversations about books because I love reading. But much of what was in the learning materials pointed out very fairly that there are just so many books and genres now that we need to develop tools and methods to help in understanding, and giving access to, the broad range of readers’ interests, not only our own preferences.
Thanks for this helpful recap champ!
