About meI'm a librarian in Massachusetts who loves to give reading suggestions, whether asked or not, a specialty known in the library world as "reader's advisory". I read a lot -- mostly literary, genre, and young adult fiction, but also short stories and memoirs -- and listen to audiobooks. Newer favorites include Elizabeth Kelly, Jennifer Haigh, Emma Straub, Joshua Henkin, Laurie Frankel, Jennifer Egan, Lev Grossman, David Mitchell, Laurie R. King, Lionel Shriver, Carolyn Parkhurst, Penny Vincenzi, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Patrick Rothfuss, Martha Southgate, Zadie Smith, Junot Diaz, PG Wodehouse, and Louise Penny. Older favorites are Lorrie Moore, Anne Tyler, Ian McEwan, Susan Howatch, Jane Langton, Laurie Colwin, and Connie Willis.
