Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I like to read sci-fi and fantasy, and allow my imagination to create the amazing visuals that the writer describes. I'm a child of the 70s and so Star Wars type space opera will always find a warm welcome in my reading stack.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I just use my Samsung Galaxy phone with FBReader. It isn't a big one and only shows about one paragraph at a time at a font size that is comfortable to read. But, the best e-reader is the one you actually have with you.
