What do you read for pleasure?
There are very few genres I can't get into, but the books I've most enjoyed reading have been World War II historical accounts (particularly the ones written by Stephen Ambrose), fantasy and science-fiction, cyberpunk, and lately, urban fantasy. Recently, I've read some of Nigel Findley's Shadowrun novels, I've started the Dresden Files series, and Monster Hunters International.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I think the Kindle is pretty awesome. So awesome, I actually have three of them. I have a Kindle Keyboard (the 3rd generation e-ink Kindle), but I do most of my reading now on a Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" as well as on the Kindle App on my iPhone. I also have a first generation Kindle Fire for which I'm looking for a new home, since there's little need to have two tablets.
