Reading for fun is a category of its own. There is no difference between the genres I read when I enjoy a book in question. There is a lot of fun when it comes to reading a fiction piece, I mean, who doesn’t like to submerge themselves in a story full of fantastic elements whether magical, mysterious or suspenseful? Also, there are a number of books that provide the reader with a limitless well of wonder by detailing the life of a historical figure or how about reading an inspirational book where the reader is transported to different travel locations with beautiful and compelling photographs? Similarly, science and technology offer many books at every level of knowledge to detail wondrous discoveries.
When a person is reading for fun, anything goes, in my opinion. However, my preferred genre of reading is Fantasy and Science Fiction. More fantasy I suppose since lately, either medieval magic or obscured vampires have invaded my reading queue list and by the looks of it, It will be a good while before I move on to other equally enjoyable pastures. There was a time when I could have answered to the call of voracious reader, but sadly, since I retired from my job, I have too many things to do with and for my seven year old daughter to keep up with all the books I want to read. Now days, I have to choose one book and stick to it until it is done. Nothing wrong with that, but in my case I used to have many stories in my head while I went about my day. Now I can hardly keep up with the only book I’m reading since my real life demands more attention now that I’m retired, believe it or not and the pile of book I want to read keeps getting bigger and bigger.
One thing that doesn’t change is that I do have fun reading all kinds of genres. As a matter of fact, in my book, reading and fun is the same thing so I can tell you without a doubt that I have fun reading fiction as well as non fiction, so long as it is a book that caches my attention.
