I enjoy reading in the car as well as in a space with white noise in a comfy chair, with back support!

Codex all day!!!

What book have you recommended the most in the past 12 months?

Life Together and The Christian Imagination are probably tied for the books I’ve recommended the most in the past year.

What is most enjoyable about your reading life?

The joy of reading is that I enter another world, a space where my material realities meet the life of how things can be or, better yet, how they ought to be.
