My Librarian - Sue

I have never considered myself a voracious reader, although you might think so if you saw the stack of books I take home! Job casualty, I guess! 

As Westlake Porter Public Library’s Business Librarian, I am very practical minded so when I am reading fiction it must be believable in setting, story and characters and I must learn something!  I love reading books by authors who have the talent to construct concise yet uniquely descriptive sentences.  I gravitate to nonfiction, historical fiction, stories set in World War II, biographies, underdogs who rise above, and well-read audiobooks.  Now that I am in a book club, I have broadened my reading to include more fiction.
