Strategic Statement: This is framed as a personal question. It may or may not be appropriate to cite business strategy or leadership titles... this might come across as bravado (and unless you were very familiar with the specific author or philosophy you could set a trap for yourself). Do you read? Why do you read?
Sample Response: I have been reading since I was about seven years old. More and more I find myself returning to things I’ve already read and re-reading them. It’s a great way to inventory how much you’ve changed and matured. There are some books that now seem childish and juvenile, that perhaps were once enlightening and humorous. The last book I read was Huckleberry Finn. I find that I focus more now on the author’s voice then I do on his caricatures and plot. Mark Twain was a tremendous social commentator and critic, and Huckleberry Finn offers insight that is still applicable today.
