One of my student's first assignments each semester is to write their own reader profile and then switch with another student. The students then take a classmate's redering preferences and practice being a readers' advisor. Last semester, I linked to Jennilyn and Dan's pair here.
This semester, I present Amy's profile and John's response.
Notice that Amy's profile presents an interesting problem since she lists the same author for a book she loved and one she did not enjoy. John's response handled this well. Also, John's response shows that a woman who likes Chick Lit can be helped by a trained, professional male librarian who prefers true crime.
I hope their work helps you or your patrons. Thanks for agreeing to share Amy and John.
