Book Blogger Hop August 17th - August 23rd: Thirteen Ghosts Is a Silly Movie, But I Love It Anyway

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books has restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them. A complete explanation of the history and the rules of the Hop can be found here.

This week Jen asks: What is the one genre you will NEVER read?

This is a difficult question for me to answer, because I am having a hard time coming up with a genre that I have not already read. I mostly read science fiction and fantasy, with a healthy does of non-fiction thrown in. But I've read horror. And westerns. And mainstream contemporary fiction. I've read romance novels. I've read what could only be described as porn. I've read Christian fiction. I've even read things like the Baby-Sitter's Club and "chik-lit". So I guess that the answer to the question is "none". There simply isn't a genre I can think of that I haven't already read, let alone one that I would never read.

  1. You're wide open to all possibilities then :) That's a good thing to be!

    Have a great weekend and happy reading :)

  2. Wow, you're a very eclectic and open-minded reader. I'll read any genre but erotica. Other than that, I'm pretty flexible—if a book looks good, I'll read it no matter what the genre.

    Happy Hopping!

  3. @Jennifer Hartling: I suppose that's the nice way to say it. I'm thinking that it just might be that I'm not particularly discriminating when it comes to my reading selections.

  4. @Susan: I don't normally read erotica. The few times I did were because a writer I otherwise liked dabbled in it for a book or two. I blame you Samuel R. Delany.

  5. Personally for me it is Poetry...I don't like it and most of the time it just annoys me. And menage, I only need one other naked person in the room.

  6. @Vickieann: For me it depends on the poet. Give me some A.E. Housman, Milton, or something similar and I'll gladly read it. I love epic poetry like Beowulf, The Iliad, and The Odyssey too. Other poets leave me less enthused.

    And as to your thoughts on menage: umm, okay. I'll keep that in mind.
