I don't think I've ever attended a writers' event, either as a spectator or as a participant, that the question isn't posed, “Who are you reading these days?”
I never seem to have an answer at the ready. After all, no one asks me who I am wearing—and that's a good thing.
I don't think well on my feet so I could never have been a politician or a lawyer. I have to go away and ponder before I can answer almost all questions.
