This week’s musing asks…
Do you think it makes you NOT (or less) “well-read” if there are certain genres that you won’t read because you KNOW you won’t enjoy them? Why?
No, I never felt this way. The reason is because I feel I already read a wide variety of genres. If I'm leaving one or two out, it's because I don't enjoy them and I don't want to force myself to read something I won't like. There's just not enough time, especially when there are a ton of books I really want to read. Why waste time reading others just for the sake of being able to say I've read everything? Let's face it, none of us will be able to read every book or genre out there. It's not possible and, for me, reading is supposed to be enjoyment. Not forced.
All that said, I have gone out of my reading comfort zone when I received a recommendation or read a review that got my interest. Also, there are many out there that don't even like or bother to read at all. I'm sure they think I'm "well read" :)
The one way I think I might not be "well read" is that I don't read many classics or literary type books. I just feel I did that back in school and now it's time for me to enjoy what I'm reading.
So, how about you? Are you "well read"?
