Welcome!

I'm Kate.

I once said my dream job would be any job that would allow me to request books from publishers.

I’ve done that (I once produced a book review show for public radio). Now I get paid the big bucks to teach and discuss literature with high school students.

Sounds and Bites originated from my time as a journalist in yet another life. It’s not the best name for a book blog (and if you dig into the archives, you’ll find many non-book-related posts), but I like to work with what I’ve got.

Thanks for visiting!
