I used to think so, but in my mellowing (call it maturing if you like) reader life, I’ve found tendencies evolve over time. I’ve dropped old habits with ease. Below are the major reading changes I’ve experienced in the last 7-8 years.
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl since January of 2018. Jana writes, “it was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” In that spirit, link up with your list at That Artsy Reader Girl and comment with your list, link, or thoughts below.
*Audio books. I wouldn’t get half the reading done I do without them.
*Out of my comfort zone reads. I don’t cling to the security of the same few authors and genres the way I used to as a young adult. As a result, my selections are varied, non-guaranteed and occasionally risky. But nothing ventured, nothing gained.
*The older I get, the more I’ve evolved into an ardent non-fiction reader. About one-third of my reading is composed of memoir, history, investigations, essays, etc. True stories can be as powerful as fiction and often inspire my life in more meaningful ways. A few favorites above.
How have your reading habits changed over time?
