Interview with Jeannie Gerber

What do you read for pleasure?
I read a variety of books ranging from Amish Fiction, Shakespeare Literature, Vampire YA Novels, and reference books on Witchcraft and Wicca. The world of witchcraft fascinates and intrigues me. Although my creative curiosity sets me on adventures that some may call "risky" to my Christianity, my favorite all time book is still the Bible. It's a tough read, but the parables are challenging to decipher and the stories will fascinate and educate any reader.
