My Librarian: Valerie

While I enjoy reading a variety of books, my favorite genres are magical realism and historical fiction.   Most of my favorite books tend to be fairly happy ones, but I also enjoy a good drama from time to time.  I enjoy reading physical books, ebooks, and listening to audiobooks. 

I read primarily a mix of adult and teen fiction, but I also enjoy reading non-fiction.  I'm a dog lover and a crafter, so dog stories and craft books are always favorites.  I also love travel tales, short story collections, funny memoirs, and the occassional inspirational book.

In addition to reading books, I also enjoy hosting our monthly Craft Club, watching British TV, playing board games, and spending time with my family and dogs.
