Zone One
By Colson Whitehead

The moment I knew I wanted to become an author: When I was five, my mom purchased spiral bound notebooks in bulk at Sam's Club. Even though they were meant for the upcoming school year, I convinced her to give me one. It had a neon pink cover and wide ruled pages. I opened to the first page and wrote my first piece of fiction. I knew then that it was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. 

Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook: Ebook, because this is the easiest way to get titles from around the world, especially in translation.

The last book I read: Young Jane Young, by Gabrielle Zevin. I highly recommend it.
