Amy Softa


I would describe myself as an opinionated over-sharer who enjoys helping others. I am avid reader and love to share this passion with other people to help them kindle their own relationship with books. I work in a small town library in a community I adore. It is a job that only serves to feed my reading habit. I write a book review blog, Read What I Like, where I share reviews of books I read and other observations related to reading.

I am a native Iowa who now lives on a small farm with too many ‘pets’, a huge garden and one patient husband. I am a chairperson of the Creative Arts group for the Clinton County Iowa Fair. I also enjoy cycling, current events, and spending too much time online and traveling. I’m slowly introducing myself to other forms of social media outside of Facebook.
