What some people call nosy, I call curious. Reading allows me to get inside other people’s heads without appearing to be rude.
I am an admirer of tiny-houses and tiny dogs, though I own neither. I enjoy going long distances by bike, foot, kayak and other means of self-propulsion; as a result, I’ve become a listener of audiobooks and podcasts. I’m fan of outsider stories, ghost stories, coming-of-age stories, and stories of the absurd and the apocalypse. Some of my recent favorites have been Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch, Larry Watson's Let Him Go and Amanda Coplin's The Orchardist.
I love that moment when you realize that a book you are reading is one you’re going to remember for years to come; but even better is connecting someone to that memorable read - it’s the part of my job I live for.
