Favorite Book: "The Other Side of Midnight" by Sidney Sheldon

"I couldn't put it down. I remember I had to go to the gym, but I just had to finish it--it was that good! It was about two guys--one white, the other black--and how their life's grew closer together despite problems. I enjoyed "Animal Farm" too. There are so many books I've enjoyed, but these days, I'm reading more business contracts than books. I might be reading as many books as I used to, but I do read 3-4 newspapers a day--two Detroit papers, the "USA Today", a New York paper, and a Las Vegas paper. It's my job as a human being to know what's going on in the world."
