Today's real question on BTT is about e-books, and I am still cogitating about them, even though I have, and love, my Nook. That's for another post. Since we haven't done a BTT entry in, like, forever, I decided to take an earlier week's question:
Do you ever feel like you're in a reading rut? That you don't read enough variety? That you need to branch out, spread your literary wings and explore other genres, flavors, styles?
Yes. Oh, yes, yes, yes, yes. That's why I'm always listening for what other people are enjoying that they are reading. I have a younger friend who is into fantasy in a big way, and it's not a genre that I've ever been particularly drawn to--other than, say, Lord of the Rings or Narnia, if those count as fantasy.
When she put a fantasy novel in my hands and said, "Want to try this? I really liked it." I was tempted to say no. But she is such a dear, and we really share a lot of the same perspectives on things (albeit mine are more staid and OLD!). So I took a flyer on it and completely enjoyed the book.
I still don't read fantasy. But a good book is a good book, and I'm happy that someone opened my eyes to something that was out of my box.
What about YOU? Read anything I should be reading lately???
