Batavia Public Library

My Librarian Stacey

Once you have read a book you care about, some part of it is always with you.
—Louis L’Amour

Destined to become a librarian? Probably: I cataloged my books—including all umpteen Nancy Drew mysteries—when I was in 4th grade. These days you’ll find me reading tons of nonfiction, especially the narrative stuff with a storyline that reads like fiction. I’ll read nonfiction about nearly any topic, but books about self-improvement, presidential history, aviation, journalists, popular sociology, adventure, and historic tragic events most often populate my reading list. I’m also an occasional mystery reader, drawn to private investigator first-person narratives and police procedurals like Craig Johnson’s Walt Longmire mystery series. And I like contemporary fiction, especially the types of books that are discussable for book clubs.
