    Pat Conroy, the beloved American storyteller, is also a vora­cious reader. He has for years kept a notebook in which he notes words or phrases, just from a love of language. But read­ing for him is not simply a pleasure to be enjoyed in off-hours or a source of inspiration for his own writing. It would hardly be an exaggeration to claim that reading has saved his life, and if not his life then surely his sanity.

    Howard says: "Conroy shares his storytelling"
    "Loved it!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Conroy gives lots of information on the authors and books that he loved and that influenced him. I thought that might be a guide as to how I should spend some of my reading time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Reading Life?

    I laughed when I read about Conroy's trip down the Chattooga just because he had read Deliverance, by Dickey.


    Have you listened to any of Pat Conroy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. The professional narrator is better for his fiction, but he is better for talking about himself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
