I love books. If I could get paid to simply buy and read books, I would be a happy man. I was a fairly avid reader from a young age. I read Sesame Street books, Dr. Seuss, the science adventures of Christopher the Mouse (We had the same name! I did not yet realize that my name is incredibly common). As I grew up, I read Boxcar Children and The Indian in the Cupboard series. But the first book that I loved--where everything clicked and a new world was opened up to me--was The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I read C.S. Lewis' classic in the sixth grade and remember being immersed in the imaginative world of Narnia. It's still a touchstone for me concerning creativity, literature, and faith.
