I read a wide variety of books. In the steady stream of mysteries and thrillers I admit to reading romances and YA. My library includes books on computer programming, business, self improvement (none of which have taken hold), and science. If something seems interesting I’ll take a run at it. A few years back I decided life is too short to muddle through a book I am forcing myself to read. It may not be a bad book. It doesn’t click with me. I have tried Hemingway, but can’t get into his rhythm, so I gave up feeling inadequate that I didn’t like him and moved on.
I’m not much of a poetry reader. Though my favorite genre is Literary, I’m definitely one of those numbskulls that just doesn’t get it. I want to read a story, not words.
