Book Blogger Hop

I've been trying to read more book blogs lately and I ran across the Book Blog Hop. This looks like a great idea to me and it will be a good way to find new blogs every week.

Book Blogger Hop

So here's the link for this week's Hop and this week's question is:

“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”

My Answer:

I wouldn't say I primarily read one genre of books, unless you count a category as wide as "fiction." I definitely read way more fiction than nonfiction. Other than that though, I read contemporary fiction, literary fiction, science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, classics, fiction from different periods and cultures, and occasionally drama and poetry. Once in a while I read nonfiction on a topic of scientific or sociological interest, or a biography. The only books I really don't read are mysteries and thrillers and I have read a few of those. So....if writers stopped writing fiction, well, I'd just read the backlog! But if there were no more fiction, I would read significantly less. If people stopped writing science fiction, I would be sad, but there's so much other stuff out there that it probably wouldn't slow my pace.

Fiction's definitely a favorite of mine too, and like you said...if they stopped writing fiction, I'd probably read significantly less as well. Though I doubt anything could get me to stop reading for good!

Have a great weekend!

I like your answer. There are so many different things to read even if new books in a favorite genre stopped being published. Please come see what I would read.

I agree, there is enough old books I haven't read to keep me going for ages.

That is quite an eclectic taste you have! Awesome. It helps us appreciate all types of creativity if we read different genres.
