It seems as though every time I record a segment for the CBC I get more and more opinionated (“How could that possibly be?” I’m sure my husband asks himself). I think that’s because I’m getting more comfortable-the big black fuzzy microphone in my face doesn’t seem as daunting as it used to be.

What Christmas books will you be picking up in the next few weeks?
I love listening to an audiobook of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I’ve got a wonderful version read by Tom Baker who played the 4th incarnation of Doctor Who. He’s brilliant as all the different characters and creating that ghostly atmosphere.
Ohhh an audiobook-what a wonderful Christmas tradition!
I just listened to your radio segment – you sound so relaxed! And now I want to read Conclave, which is probably a book I wouldn’t have thought twice about before.
Enjoy your Christmas book! 🙂
Oh thank you! And yes, Conclave-very surprising, but very enjoyable 🙂

Thanks so much for your kind words, happy holidays to you and your family!
