Top reading things about me

What was the last book you bought?

I bought one the other day – Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger.

Name a book you have read MORE than once.

The Handmaid’s Tale, Gone With the Wind, To Kill a Mockingbird — they are the best books ever!

Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life? If yes, what was it?

I think that books have a way of changing our lives inherently. There is one book that has changed my life more so than most others though – To Kill A Mockingbird – because it made me want to be Atticus Finch and if I ever have another son, I WILL name him Atticus.

How do you choose a book?

Um, blog reviews, podcast reviews, the NY Times reviews, co-worker recommendations.

Do you prefer fiction or non-fiction?

Definitely fiction.

What’s more important in a novel – beautiful writing or a gripping plot?

Both
