Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Space opera and hard science fiction, also a bit of fantasy. I love writers like Kim Stanley Robinson, C.J. Cherryh, Sean Williams, Stephen Baxter, Robin Hobb and Glenda Larke. I know that's a varied bunch. This is how I tick. I also read a lot of non-fiction.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My little Kobo Touch. In all honesty, I'm not too fussed about technological preferences as long as companies don't make it hard for me to read what I want whenever I want.
