I’ve been thinking lately on how people limit themselves on what they read. & I personally don’t get it. There are people who prefer dystopias, only go for the classics, or avoid love triangles (and I really don’t blame those who do).
Of course there are so many other genres that I’m not addressing, but the point come across. like I said, I just don’t get it.
I don’t see the point in only staying within one genre. Why limit yourself?
I mean… I love dystopias as much as the next person, but sometimes they just get old.
You’ve heard of fantasy, right? I read that sometimes too.
Once in awhile I need the crap scared out of me by “horror” books – classic or otherwise.
On the rare occasion I would prefer action or adventure?
what if I want to fall in love with a contemporary character?
or read Christian lit?
& I know I have my days when I need to immerse myself within the glorious world with the characters of Jane Austen.
Books for every mood that I tend to encounter. Who knew, right? =)
Yeah, I know. these overlap to a point. You can mix and match. but I seriously don’t get why people limit themselves to certain genres. There are so many worlds to visit and explore. And I also get that some genres that are more appealing to some people more than others. That’s okay.
I’m just trying to say that all because you prefer a certain genre doesn’t mean that you can discard the others. Give them a try. If you’re like me, you want to read. all. the books. you read whatever you can get your hands on. I don’t limit myself because I don’t see the point because who knows what I’d be missing out on.
That’s all I’m saying. Make sense? Am I crazy yet? let me know in the comments!
