What do you read for pleasure?
My favorite books are biographies and autobiographies of interesting historical people, but I also enjoy reading historical theory books such as Fingerprints of the Gods and 1921, the Year that the Chinese Discovered America.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I typically utilize my IPad for ebook reading, but I often use my IPhone.
