Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
Since I have downsized to save money, I no longer have a desk. I use an upholstered chair with an ottoman that I bought for $38 and write with my 7 year old laptop. This is a very comfortable arrangement. I have a nice view out the window and a quiet place to work. Sometimes I move to the dining room table or couch to work for a change of pace and to be with my family. Using a laptop to write is very convenient since I can move around so easily.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use my old laptop computer with a 17 inch screen as my e-reading device. Not exactly leading-edge technology, but I can read everything I want on it and it is portable. I have several free programs I can use to read eBook files, or .pdf files work fine too.
