Ellen Jennings

I grew up in a family of voracious readers and the library was my second home. Photos from summer vacations show us reading in lawn chairs all across the US. With the advent of audiobooks, today I can even read while driving, exercising and cleaning! I love all kinds of fiction: historical, mystery, thriller, literary, young adult and science fiction and I usually have 2 or 3 books going at a time. I enjoy learning about people and the past via nonfiction. I prefer books with vivid characterization and excellent writing. When not reading, I love to talk about books, so stop by the Popular Services desk and let’s chat!
