Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I read Stephen King, John Grishom, Arthur C. Clarke, and Mark Twain, as do millions of others. But there are a few I read who aren't exactly household names. J. J. Zerr is a great writer. He has several novels that describe the life of military men and their families. He deserves to be much better known. Lionel Shriver is another current favorite. But I'm going to add two names that that have been very important to me whose writing is not always considered for "pleasure." Elaine Pagels is a Biblical scholar and writer who helps me to find understanding and reality in contemporary Christianity. And the single most important contemporary writer on religious topics to me has been Bishop John Shelby Spong. Pagels and Spong appeal to both my intellect and to my tradition of faith.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I personally own a Nook. My sister uses a Kindle. I have friends who use iPads. I'm not aware of any particular reason to like one over another. Once I've gone to the trouble to learn how to operate something, I need strong motivation to abandon it and learn how to operate something else for the same purpose.

    Very Beautiful. Congratulations, Penelope Merrell. Anyone who ever had a dog and a cat will relate to this. I'm in awe how with these drawings you tell a story that would require several thousand words.
