Best Book Ever Podcast: Episode 8

I was invited on the Best Book Ever Podcast hosted by Julie Strauss today.  We had a discussion about one of my favorite novels, Memory & Dream by Charles de Lint.  Also, Julie asked about my reading philosophy and where my love of reading came from.  It was an enjoyable talk and I actually could listen to my own recorded voice for more than 5 minutes.
