How do you like to read your books?
This is a question that puzzles me about reading and when I watch a book show I feel compelled to read the new releases they’re discussing. But I’m also a bit picky so I like to read what I like to read, if you know what I mean? My reading choice is determined by my current headspace so if I’m thinking of an epic, or something about an exotic land or something about relationships or something about parenting or something about girlfriends then I feel compelled to read in that space too and ignore the book review pages. I’m also keen to read from the classic so every now and then I have to pick a classic and go with that.
My husband’s an English teacher so that helps with recommendations and advice on what classic to choose. But then I also love biographies because, well, they’re real and I want to know how real people deal with the real things of life.
Do you stick with new releases or best sellers? Do you read a book by an author and then decide to to read other books by the same writer? Do you read the classics? Or do you read a combination of new and old? What about fiction and non-fiction?
