Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I read G. Ernest Smith. He's brilliant! Did that sound too self-serving? Too shameless? No, really, I read a lot of stuff, history, science, but I read thrillers mostly. Names like David Baldacci, Tess Gerritsen, Lee Child, Jonathan Kellerman, Randy Wayne White, Tom Lowe, John Sandford. Once in a while, I take a break from thrillers and delve into some quality science fiction and fantasy with John Scalzi, Joe Haldeman, Elizabeth Moon, Lois McMaster Bujold.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I spill a bowl of alphabet soup over a snow globe. If I squint, I can make out words.

That sounded a lot funnier when it was still in my head.

Actually, I use a Kindle Paperwhite but I also have Kindle and Nook apps on my Android tablet phone.
