Store values from datareader

Greetings all

I have a series of values (eg. LatestTitle, Author, WhereAvailable) stored in a table (which will only ever contain a single record). This will be read when the page first loads and be dispalyed  appropriately.

My idea is to use a DataReader to retrieve the values and store them in AspHyperlink, AspLabel and ASPTextBox.

My questions:-

1.  Is the DataReader the best way to go for this (assuming that the data won't change)?
2.  Am I correct in saying that the fields, once populated, will retain their values during PostBAck?

In advance, thanks!

DataReader is fine as a data access method.  Of which there are countless (I am very fond of LINQ right now).
For speed of such a small entry I would probably use a local XML file as I am assuming this table is stored in a SQL db and that requires a DB call each time.

As for the postback question, you are correct, they will stay populated on postback.
