Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Virtually anything.

I can be happy reading J K Rowling, or Charles Dickens, or Shakespeare. I will read things by other indies, or film and TV tie ins. Recently I've discovered the excellent lore for the trading card game Magic the Gathering. I've also picked up many compilations by Delphi Classics, a publisher that collects entire bodies of works by single authors into ebooks, many of which are long out of print. Highly recommended.

My favourite author though, has to be Stephen King. The way he writes is infinitely entertaining. His conversational style feels like he's telling you a scary story by the campfire.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My iPhone. I like to read on my iPad as it's larger, but it's an older model and is thus very slow. Plus, I'd only use it for reading so it's an extra device that I don't need.

I still have a fondness for my Kindle, but again, it's an older version and cannot hold the all the books I want.

As for the app, I prefer to use the Kindle.
