Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

That's hard because I would have said Medieval but then I always get really interested in the period I'm reading about. I'll suddenly become interested in the Romans or 17th century.
