Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I'm always looking for new fiction to read, preferably something well-written and exciting, with contemporary relevance.

I find a lot of 'literary fiction' to be disappointing, so I rely on writers like John le Carré and Robert Harris. If I could find newer writers of the quality of Gore Vidal or Tom Wolfe, I would read them. I'm not really into fantasy, but I like Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. And I'm a big fan of P. G. Wodehouse.

As for non-fiction, I read books about politics, science, music and literature.

And I love reading computer programming manuals.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I've got a second-generation Kindle -- the one with the keyboard. That's pretty good.

And someone gave me a Kobo. Not bad, but I find the Kindle easier to use.

For reading PDFs or non-text-based material, I use a Windows 8 tablet.
