I got back into tabletop RPGs about 5 years ago. Now my son and I play almost every week. Recently the group has lost players and I found it hard to find new people with the same interests. So a group that loves reading Sci-Fi and Fantasy not only seems like a logic pool of folk that might like to come game with us, it is also a group that I would enjoy talking with.
How about favorite authors, one book is hard to pick. David Gemmell's demise was one of the saddest days of my life. Add to him Orson Scott Card, David Duncan, Jim Butcher and Brandon Sanderson and you have my top 5 authors.
Probably once a month.
I'm a father of two, a hospital application designer/researcher and D&D buff. I find if I don't create something regularly I get edgy. My job allows me to create data tools, my hobby gives me a reason to write, draw, map and plan endlessly and since my family is also very creative I have partners for many of my projects. When I put all of it together there are days when I think I am the luckiest guy alive.
My first criteria when buying pants is "will a paperback fit I the front or back pocket." I love to read. I love writing as well. The amount of material I produce for the D&D games I run could be considered novellas.
