My Reading Interests:
Reading has always been my first choice for “fun thing to do” ever since I was first learning how to do it! Beyond that though, it’s always been a way for me to learn about things. My “to read” pile will always be out of proportion to the time that I have available for whittling it down, but that’s okay. I’m a lifelong comics fan, and that covers a lot of “fun reading.” I spend a lot of time with the sci-fi and fantasy genres, mythology-based stories, and I always enjoy biographies about creative people. There’s also so much Young Adult material that can be enjoyed by everyone.

My Favorites: 
I have a definite “current favorite” since I have started to read the Discworld novels of Terry Pratchett. His writing is so full of wit and great observations. 

Classic favorites:
Jane Eyre, Frankenstein, To Kill A Mockingbird

Genre:
sci-fi, fantasy, biography

Comfort Reads:
Going back to things that I first read years ago. It might be a Redwall book, a Star Wars book...you never know.

What have you read or listened to recently? 
Jim Henson: The Biography by Brian Jay Jones
Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce
Mort by Terry Pratchett

What HPL online resources do you use and recommend? Why? 
Cloud Library is important to make use of because it can be a little easier to get access to digital resources than through Libby.

Any words of advice for people using Libby or cloudLibrary for the first time? 
Find out how you can adjust settings to make digital reading work best for you (know how to adjust text size, font, etc.).
