What's Tom Jones reading

Tom Jones, the 68-year-old Welsh wonder and indomitable panty magnet, still tours the globe 11 months out of the year. That doesn't leave a whole lot of time for curling up with a good book. But before a recent gig at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, the Voice told us what good reads are waiting for him if/when he ever gets a much-needed rest.

What is on your nightstand?

I love history books, particularly British history. I just got Victoria's Wars: The Rise of Empire (by Saul David), about the wars going on during Queen Victoria's reign. Haven't started it yet, but I plan to. I'm very interested in that time. Oh, and Tony Curtis just gave me a book.

Tony Curtis? What book did he give you?

Ha! He gave me his book (American Prince: My Autobiography)! Tony lives in Vegas. He comes to see me every time I'm there. He'll come in that first week. I love just talking to him 'cause Tony has all these great stories. If you ask the man any question, the man will tell you a great story.
