Hi Kirsty,

Interesting post! I agree with the point you made about being a voracious reader not being an essential qualification for providing a good readers advisory service. For me it comes down to the fact that all people are individual and just because you may have read the same book as me we may not share the same opinions about it. I feel that due to this reason readers advisory provided by someone who merely reads a great amount and makes recommendations based on personal experience needs to take care that this does not become information that is personally biased. To this end I feel that the use of RA tools and resources can provide better assistance to patrons because they are created in consultation with many people and are formed from many opinions therefore catering to as many people as possible.
