Have your book-tastes changed over the years? More fiction? Less? Books that are darker and more serious? Lighter and more frivolous? Challenging? Easy? How-to books over novels? Mysteries over Romance?
The Ravenous Reader has been reading for many, many years~nearly 50 to be exact. As I reflect on all the thousands of books I’ve so happily devoured, I realize my tastes have not fundamentally changed. I crave fiction with complex characters and great big story lines, people whose lives I can enter in and lose myself. I love multi-faceted mysteries with a strong psychological dimension, again with well developed characters. My mouth waters when I pick up a new biography or memoir, particulary if the subject is one of my favorite authors. Recently, I’ve developed a taste for the short story, and enjoy nibbling away at these savory little gems.
So, I suppose you could say my reading tastes have remained quite steadfast…how about yours?
