Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Anything at all. If it's written, I'll read it.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Nook, though I don't have any particular brand loyalty here. I would say, though, that it's important to get an e-reader that is ONLY an e-reader, i.e. one that doesn't let you play games or surf the web. If you're going to get one with those capabilities, just get an iPad and admit you aren't really going to do much reading on it.
