Joe N.’s Favorite State Flag

This is the fourteenth interview for Reader of the Month.

I’ve always known Joe N. He’s my dad! Dad’s also one who has encouraged me to read whenever I could and go to the library where I could borrow books for free.

I cannot stand having fines on my library card.

3)      What’s on your bookshelf or in your book bag?

The NIV Bible and today’s paper.

4)      Who supplies your reading material?

The Houston Chronicle and various online news sites – Real-Clear Politics, The Drudge Report, etc.

5)      What type of reading do you usually enjoy?

I don’t limit myself to one type of reading. Usually, I prefer nonfiction such as the news. Yet, there’s fiction out there I enjoy, too.
