What’s your favorite book and why?

The Tender Bar by J.R. Moehringer
Moehringer’s story was instrumental in inspiring my inner writer and solidified my desire to become a reporter. His upbringing was very relatable, and minus his experience with bars, I resonated with his story more than any other novel I’ve read.
