Musing Mondays (July 11)

This week’s Musing Mondays from Should Be Reading  asks…

“This week’s musing asks…

Do you think it makes you NOT (or less) “well-read” if there are certain genres that you won’t read because you KNOW you won’t enjoy them? Why?

No, not really. I mostly read mysteries and classics. I read the papers daily. I also browse the net and catch up with the latest news. Believe it or not, cruising through Wikipedia, the ultimate source of knowledge in the modern world in my opinion,  is one of my favourite things in the world! After all that I don’t think not reading works from genres I know I will not enjoy much like non-fiction or YA will  make much difference to my knowledge.

  1. mysteries and classics is right up my alley!!
    it all comes down to how you define ‘well read’ doesn’t it?
    but that being said, I think a lot of the “classics” are just really, really good stories and we should not skip them just because we don’t ‘have’ to read them like we did in school.

    1. Yes. I understand how if young people are made to read something they are prone to develop a certain distaste for it. Luckily, I went to a school that never made us read anything we didn’t want to. I do hope most people will try to overcome their aversion to classics and at least try them out once in a while. Some of them have really good stories that are still as fresh today as they were when they were first published.

    1. Right you are! It all comes down to loving a good book. I may not be well read but at least I am a reader. If I can read and enjoy a good book, that’s all there’s to it. 🙂
