Dave B.

My Librarian DaveI rediscovered reading at the Belleville Public Library almost 20 years ago when I picked up a paperback by Lee Child. I enjoy reading different genres, but gravitate to more ‘thriller’ type books which tell a great story and transport me to a different time and place. It is a wonderful waste of time! I am constantly looking for more great authors and enjoy when a new author continues the work of one who has left us (e.g. Ace Atkins continuing Robert B. Parker’s work).
