What are your five favorite books, and why?
Goodness. Only five? And...what genre are we talking about? What mood am I in? Let's talk about authors, instead. In the fantasy genre, I am a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, J.K. Rowling, Jim Butcher, Linda Wisdom, and Jennifer Estep among others.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mostly either fantasy of one form or another, or spy novels.
