Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Urban Fantasy such as the Dresden Files, Anita Blake, Kitty Norville, and others. I read Steven King, Dean Koontz once in a while, Clive Barker, I love good horror. I love Fantasy of course, Robin Hood or Robin Wood for a few people out there, Bilbo, Frodo, and Samwise, as well as a certain Took. A stupid vain Griffon comes to mind as well as the rest of Valdemar. Spider Robinson and his amazing pun-filled bar and brothel. Eve Dallas, I love mysteries, which, of course, leads me to Poe with Murder in the Rue Morgue and Sherlock Homes. I know where my towel is and why you don't let Vogons read you their poetry. I guess as a dyslexic once I started reading I just couldn't get enough.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My computer. I love the nook for mobile, but I like being where​ I can do something once I finish the book. Give it time to digest and for me to enjoy it.
