Book you've faked reading: None – I’ll readily confess to the gaps in my reading.
Book you are an evangelist for: We Need to Talk About Kevin – Lionel Shriver.
Book you've bought for the cover: None – a cover might turn me off but not make me buy.
Book that changed your life: The Novel by James Michener – When I first realized the layers of jobs involved with books; that I could have a life in books without having to become an author.
Book you most want to read again for the first time: Lonesome Dove.
Book you'd take with you to a desert island: A dictionary – it has all the words you need.
Song that has played the most on your MP3 player: I put it on shuffle and just let it play, it would be rude to interrupt the flow.
Best way to spend a weekend: In a lawn chair on my front porch with a good book, a cold bottle of wine, and my sweetheart by my side.
Your go-to pick for movie night: On my non-premium Dish TV I check AMC, IFC, and Comedy Central – in that order.
Favorite Vacation Destination: The beach.
Window or Aisle: Aisle!!
