Book Blog Hop 1/14-1/17

Posted on: January 15, 2011

Book Blogger Hop

This meme is hosted by Crazy For Books. Head on over for some great reads!

This week’s question comes from Barb who blogs at Sugarbeat’s Books:

Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?

I’ve never considered myself a genre reader. I read too many genres to count! I enjoy nonfiction books, because I enjoy learning about History (especially!) and the world around me. I love England, especially the Regency area, so I enjoy reading Regency fiction as well. It’s one time period I would like to visit. I have spent a good deal of time in Montana, so I enjoy frontier fiction as well. This is an area and era I can relate to, as I have pioneered missions in the area, much like the westward venturers went into lands unknown to build their lives. I also enjoy Sci-Fi and Fantasy. I always have. This is a genre I love to watch, and I love to read about it more.

So that’s me. I can’t pick one genre, and I love several for several different reasons!

Hopping through. I haven’t read a lot of regency fiction, but I love Georgette Heyer (who I think of as regency fiction). Do you like her books?

My Hop

Love your answer to the hop question! And I’d love to read more about your frontier missions; intriguing!

Thanks! I have not read Georgette Heyer yet – thank you for suggesting her! I will need to get one of her books and start reading. As for my missions, I will need to post about that someday soon. In short, I worked with Native Americans and ranchers in Montana. It’s a blast!

Thanks for stopping by! I had a funny conversation with a
friend recently about calling someone a ‘genre’ fan, since
everybody is a genre fan of some sort, not just
scifi/fantasy/paranormal fans. I read a bit of frontier fiction,
though mainly Canadian frontier XD Lexie

Just hopping by! I enjoyed reading your thoughts.

The books on this blog have been sent to me directly by either the publisher or the author. I paid nothing for these books. I received them free of charge in exchange for my honest review. I received the books only - no monetary compensation was given or received by either me nor the author or publisher. The copies I review are considered review copies or Advance Reader Copies. I will note in each post if I received a copy of the book for free from either the publisher or the author. If no such notation is made, then I purchased the book myself, was given a copy of the book by someone I know, or I checked out a copy from my local library.
