Where is your favorite place to read?
On the long deck on a ship somewhere in the middle of the Mediterranean. My most common place to read is one of two chairs in my home or while walking around my office.
E-reader or codex?
Seriously, you’re asking me this? [By this Michael means that he’d never sully his fingertips on an e-reader. At least I think that’s what he means.]
What book have you recommended the most in the past 12 months?
Are You Waiting for The One? by Peterson & Peterson.
What is most enjoyable about your reading life?
I love walking into created worlds, fashioned lives, and being able to do that between the covers of a book is so manageable. I get to meet so many different people (i.e., characters) when I read, and following up with some of the authors is a gift and a blessing, too.
