Favorite Book: N/A

"Reading is such an important activity. I have a lot of favorite books I've enjoyed over the years. Reading a book is a very personal thing and I'd prefer not to name any one book. I'd prefer to keep my personal interests private. Some books I've valued because of my father, some books because of my own tastes. But all of the books I've read have been profitable."
