Today's Musing Mondays asks this: Could you narrow down your reading to a favorite genre and author? Why, or why not? (For more on Musing Mondays, visit Should Be Reading.)
When I looked over my database of the last 250 books I read, the principal thing I noticed is that I'm an eclectic reader. No one genre or author stands out more than any other. My top categories (I didn't run a count, this just my impression) are as follows:
- History (grouping nonfiction, autobiography, biography)
- Novels about other places, other times (grouping literary fiction and historical fiction)
- Fantasy (lots of YA here)
- Mystery (mostly cozies)
- Literary & contemporary fiction (other)
What was the question? Oh, yeah. The answer is no; my tastes are just too varied.
