It's Tuesday, which means a new episode of What Should I Read Next!
Today I'm talking with blogger and author Preston Yancey. Preston is a writer, a baker, and is in the process of becoming an Anglican priest. To dispel any stereotypes you may have about that, he loves HBO, tivo, good wine, and The Nanny Diaries.
Preston and I have a great conversation about why he reads, what makes a good young adult novel, his hatred of a certain 18th century novelist, and of course, what he should read next.
