Hi, I'm John, the new intern in teen services! For the next few months, I'll be in The Hub learning from the librarians, library assistants, and teens as I work my way through library school.
I read a lot of fantasy and sci-fi, but I'm also into historical fiction, mysteries, and a whole lot of other genres. Lately I've been reading a lot of graphic novels and comics too. My current addiction is Fables and all of its various spin-offs. I wasn't a big Disney fan growing up but it's really cool to see all those fairy tale characters as immigrants to the real world.
As you can probably tell from the title of this post, I can't resist a good pun - or in this case an awful one.
I'm a pretty big gamer, though I'm falling a bit behind the times thanks to grad school. Games With Gold on the Xbox 360 is pretty much my favorite thing because I get to try games like Sleeping Dogs, Assassin's Creed, Dungeon Defenders, and Saints Row the Third that I missed the first time around.
I'm also into anime, board games, and I know way more about Star Wars than any human being should (if they don't work for LucasFilm or Disney anyway). In my (pretty rare) spare time I also study American Kenpo Karate.
I'll be around The Hub this summer, so feel free to stop and talk to me about whatever you're reading, watching, or playing lately, or just to chat in general. I always like to learn about more cool things, and share the ones I know about. Come say hi!
