I’m the library’s fiction selector and I’ve been suggesting new books to library and bookmobile customers for over 17 years. I keep up on all the new book evaluations, and my favorite question is “What are you reading?” I enjoy to speak about books and to read books. I like to tell library clients, “Attempt something brand-new. If you do not like it, a minimum of the rate is right!”
