The utter deliciousness of settling into a good book

That feeling of sinking into the most comfortable chair in the house – the one roomy enough to put your legs in any direction – with a book that you’ve been anticipating for months. The book that you know will keep your attention riveted and is guaranteed not to disappoint.

I don’t pretend that I’ve written that book, but I know it’s the feeling I want readers to have when they’re reading my stuff. When I sit down to the computer this is the feeling I’m aiming for – that someday I’ll create something as captivating as my sister’s forbidden copy of North American Birds.
