Booking Through Thursday: Spreading Your Wings

This week: Booking Through Thursday asks: "Do you ever feel like you’re in a reading rut? That you don’t read enough variety? That you need to branch out, spread your literary wings and explore other genres, flavors, styles?"

My reading mantra has always been that I will at least try a book. If I don't care for it, I'm allowed to put it down. No harm, no foul. I try to read a lot of different genres. I try to mix in some classics with my contemporary reading. I read fiction and non-fiction with equal fervor. I figure if I read this way, there is no way that I could be bored.

How about you? Are you in a reading rut?


  1. I have been exploring more books recently, mainly due to blogging.


  2. I've got a similar approach to reading.

    Here's mine answer

  3. This is such a great attitude to take towards books! I think being a well-rounded reader is many people's favorite books come from genres that they don't normally read. Allowing yourself to let go of a book that doesn't grab your attention is also an excellent quality. I'm trying to be better about that myself.

  4. Variety is good.

    here's mine:

  5. I have the same philosophy I will at least try a book no matter what the genre.

  6. You've got a great perspective! I'm the same way, I at least try the book and have no problem leaving it unfinished.

  7. I am trying to do that now. In the past I would devour a genre as soon as I am hooked on it. Then I would get bored and move on.

  8. @Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow Same here. My TBR list is crazy long now that I've started reading book blogs!

  9. @Jenna (Literature and a Lens) I still have a hard time stopping reading a book if it's gotten a lot of good reviews! I'm trying to realize that not every book is good for everyone.

  10. @booknympho I still feel a little guilty but not too guilty!

  11. @Karen Breaks are always refreshing when it comes to genres!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
