What are you reading right now?

I just finished The San Francisco Fallacy by Jonathan Siegel. Now, I'm reading Re-Invent Yourself by James Altucher. 

Who is your favorite author?

Michael Lewis, author of Moneyball, The Big Short, and Flash Boys.

What book are you too nervous to begin?

Books don't make me nervous! 

Favorite TV or film adaption of a book?

The Martian followed closely by Ready Player One.

Car reading: yea or nay?

Only audiobooks in the car!

Which do you prefer: audiobook, ebook or physical book?

I'm an e-book and audiobook guy these days. I don't have room in my house for a big collection of dead tree books.

What is your favorite reading spot?

My back deck at sunset after the kids go to bed.

What is your preference when it comes to books: new or used?

I tend to be a Kindle guy. I assume these are new unless Amazon is secret hawking me used e-books! 

"It was a dark and stormy night" or "Once upon a time"?

It was a dark and stormy night. 

If you could have coffee with any author - dead or alive - who would it be? Why?

I'm not a big "meet your heroes" person, but it would be fun to have coffee with Bob Woodward. I bet he has lots of interesting stories about the shenanigans that happen in Washington D.C. that have never been published.
