Book Blogger Hop, January 14 – 17, 2011

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. It is a great way of discovering new blogs and meeting fellow book bloggers, talking about books and authors and sharing our love for literature.

Book Blogger Hop

This week’s question is “Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?”

MY ANSWER:

There is something interesting in every genre. I read historical fiction because that is an easy way of learning about history, it really intrigues me and after having read a historical fiction book I often go and check the facts and I learn a lot in this way.

I love reading romance because I can relate to the characters and their feelings and in a way experience their happy endings.

I also read travelogues and memoirs because I get to know a lot about people and places.

Fantasy and paranormal intrigues me because I can discover all kinds of new strange worlds and thus have adventures on my own.

And so on and so on … you get the idea… every genre has something that interests me.

  1. I agree with you -so much to learn from each book! I don't think I could stick to just one genre.

  2. I also read across genres -- if a book looks interesting, I try it. And since I get most of my books from the library, it lets me try lots of different kinds of books for free! :) Happy Hopping!

  3. Here I am hopping on by...

    I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

    So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and see for yourself.

  4. Hi! I'm hopping by, too and am a new follower. I really liked your review of Persuasion. My answer this week is similar to yours--reading a bit of this and that.

  5. I read more than one genre. But there are a few genres I don't read. Come see what I do and don't read.

    I'm a new follower. Happy Friday.

    I see you're reading Labyrinth by Kate Mosse - can't wait to read your review, I've had it on my shelf for ages and just haven't gotten around to it yet!

  7. Historical fiction is pretty cool. I read The Historian not to long ago and it was awesome. A hint of vampire and history. If you haven't read try it. New follower.
    Happy Reading!
