What’s your guilty pleasure book?
Everything Star Wars. I almost finished the whole new gun, and I especially like the High Republic Series.

“Dark Matter” by Blake Crouch. It’s the only book I’ve ever read that almost made me hyperventilate. It is intense reading.

“The Golden Compass” by Philip Pullman. My wife and I have a tradition of giving us books for Christmas, and that was one of her picks for me.

What’s next on your reading list?
“The Godfather” by Mario Puzo. Charita Goshay appeared on my podcast, “What’s Up Stark”, and spoke about “The Godfather”. I’ve never seen a movie, so I picked up the book. I am doing about 100 pages and so far I love it!
What book would you take to a desert island?
I feel the need to quote “The Office”. (paraphrased) I would bring an ax, not books. If it has to be a book – “Physician’s Office Referral” … hollowed out. Inside, there would be waterproof matches, beetroot seeds, and protein bars. And, probably “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ”(by JK Rowling).
What’s the first book you remember reading?
“Go Dog Go!” by PD Eastman. It was my favorite book as a kid.
