Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
'Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll, 'Killing Me Softly' by Nicci French, 'Fiona Range' by Mary Mcgarry Morris, 'A Moveable Feast' by Ernest Hemingway and 'The Holy Bible.'
What do you read for pleasure?
I typically read anywhere from 2-3 books every week. I'm slightly hyperactive, so what I'm reading depends on my mood. If I'm lying on the beach and I don't want to think too much, I will read a mystery or thriller. I also love anything historical, where I can actually learn something. I love to read anything about Abraham Lincoln, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Vincent Van Gogh, Ernest Hemingway and Sigmund Freud. I also try to read a little bit of the bible every week, as I believe that this is truly the coolest book ever written.
