By Maryann Yin 

Trevor Noah (GalleyCat)Trevor Noah has revealed his favorite authors. The comedian and current host of The Daily Show sat for an interview with The New York Times to talk about his reading habits and the writers he holds in high regard.

Some of the writers that Noah most admires include Harry Potter series author J. K. Rowling, Hamilton: The Revolution co-writer Lin-Manuel Miranda, and journalist Paul Krugman. During his childhood, he favored The BFG author Roald Dahl and The Chronicles of Narnia author C.S. Lewis.

When asked about how often he reads, Noah shared this statement: “I read every day. Some days more than others, but every day. I almost always read electronically; I travel a great deal, and the weight of physical books has become a luxury I can’t afford, and I’ve actually grown to love reading on my phone more than paper. It’s not romantic, but it works for me.”
