Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Depends on my mood. Lately, I've read a number of African authors because their themes and content really seem to connect with me. I like to read pre-2000 books more, full of drama, real life situations as well as sy-fy that really mimics reality.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I like hard copies, paperbacks, but if I had to choose it would be Kindle.
