Todays Musing Mondays asks us…
How has your reading changed over the years? Have you started reading more “meaty” books (books with more substance)? Or, have you gone to more “fluffy” reads? Perhaps you’ve done neither, and you’ve just always read the same type of thing! If that’s the case, why? Are you willing to step out of your reading ‘comfort zone’ and try something new? What would you recommend to someone who needed to “branch out”?
My reading has most definitely changed over the years. I used to be more interested in what I now call ‘fluff reads’ than I used to be and I used to like Harlequins and stuff like that-never read them now.
I’m not sure when my reading tastes changed. I think they did a lot when I joined my book club because people would suggest reads and I’d look them up and read them if they sounded good. Then I started hanging out reading reviews on online stores and that got me more interested in different books too. Now, with blogging, the sky is the limit. I get so many good recommendations that I can’t keep track of them anymore.
I’m always willing to leave my comfort zone for a book because I don’t think I really have a comfort zone. I enjoy so many different kinds of books-general fiction, historical/Biblical fiction, horrors and many others. I’m not keen on romance but at the same time I would give one a try. The only thing I won’t read and won’t change my mind on is self help type of books. I read a book to escape and enjoy and I just don’t find that those types of books do that for me at all.
So, what about you…have your reading tastes changed? What kinds of books are your favorites-are you willing to leave your comfort zone for a good read? Join in the fun and leave me a comment.
