My Librarian: Andrea


My Librarian: Andrea

I love a good story with witty characters, dry humor, satire, or inventive new worlds. My favorite genres are sci-fi, fantasy, comedy, short stories, biographies (especially comedians!) — plus whatever non-fiction catches my eye.

When it comes to fiction, I’m all about great world building — whether it’s textured and elaborate like Tolkien, or absurd like Douglas Adams. My non-fiction choices can be all over the place, but they’re usually light and funny.
