What are you reading right now?

Debbie Macomber’s “Angels at the Table”

What made you want to read this particular book?

I love all of the Debbie Macomber books, especially her Cedar Cove series and these Shirley, Goodness and Mercy books.

What genre do you like the most? Why?

Romance. Not sure why. ... It has been my favorite since I started reading Harlequin romance novels at the Immanuel school library in seventh grade.

What is your favorite book(s) of all-time?

A teen book from the 1960s called “Bonnie” that I read back in the late ’70s and purchased from the Friends of the Library when I first started as children’s librarian in 1987. I have the book at home and would have to look to find the author.

Recommend a book to our readers.

I can’t recommend a single book. Authors that I recommend are Debbie Macomber, Linda Lael Miller, Jude Deveraux, LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Sandra Brown, Nora Roberts or JD Robb.

Why should people read this book?

They write good stories, and most of them have series of books where you get to know the characters more than in a single book.

When is your favorite time of the day to read and where do you like to read?

At night when I go to bed. I get that from my mom. At least I no longer need to have a flashlight under the sheets.

Do you prefer reading books, downloading e-books or listening to books on tape? Why?

Reading books. ... I just can’t seem to make the move to electronic. I’m not in the car long enough to listen to audiobooks.

Why do you love to read?

For me, it’s an escape from everyday life and a way to wind down at the end of the day.
