What are your five favorite books, and why?
I have a thing for the Young Adult fantasy genre. Yes I'm one of those people. I think more than anything else, it's the innocence and coming of age. I have to admit it's the romance too. Top five would consist of: The Mortal Instruments series, Vampire Academy series, The Twilight saga, Morganville Vampire series, and House of Night novels. Yes, I love vampires.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use the Samsung 10.0. The memory is wonderful and it holds a lot of books.
