Active Authors:

Alan: I read omnivorously, tending to err on the side of quirky literary fiction. Although I also dip into young adult and children’s lit from time to time. Check out my feed at Goodreads here.

Carol: Carol likes to read for fun. Her reading material tends to be fluffy, funny, and/or frivolous. If she were stranded on an island with only one author’s books she would take Dave Barry. Lately she’s doing that thing she said she’d never do: reading teen fiction! Authors like Libba Bray, Lauren Morrill, and Gail Carriger keep her coming back for more. She obsessively records what she reads and what she wants to read on GoodReads.

LisaLisa is a Northwest Historian at the Everett Public Library. When she’s not digging into local history, she likes to escape into other worlds and other time periods by reading a lot of scifi, fantasy, and historical fiction. That being said, she has a real soft spot for non-fiction as well, so you might see her posting a lot about science, history, culture, and any other random subjects that strike her fancy. To find out what she is reading, check out her GoodReads feed.
