Welcome to Day #22 of the April A to Z Challenge, where participants are challenged to create a post every day (except Sundays) corresponding to the appropriate letter of the alphabet. If you’d like to learn more, hit the badge on my sidebar.
I’ll be posting about bookish topics each day of the challenge. Here’s today’s post:
I stopped by the library tonight to return some books and pick up some holds. I still have a few books checked out that aren’t ready to be returned yet, so right now I’ve got a total of ten library books at home falling into these categories:
1 true crime
1 sports nonfiction
1 “book about books”
1 Young Adult novel
I’m genuinely excited about all of these books, but I’m not sure that I’ll get to all of them before they’re due. I’m about 1/3 of the way through the sports title, and I know I’ll be starting at least one of the other books this weekend as well—I’m usually reading more than one book at a time—but I’m not sure which one yet.
I know that some people are pretty devoted to reading books in one or two genres, but I’ve never been that way. I go in spurts sometimes, such as reading a bunch of biographies in a row, or reading everything I can find by a particular author, but I’m usually reading a lot of books in a pretty big variety of genres.
How about you? Do you have variety in your reading life, or do you tend to stick to one or two types of books? Have you read any of these books? Please share!
