Good morning, and welcome to Musing Mondays, hosted by Should Be Reading.
Every week, we ponder a question. Today’s Question:
Do you prefer deep, intellectual, “meaty” books… or light, “fluffy” books? Why? Give us an example of your preferred type of book.
I actually love both, but I have to mix them up. Although when I was younger, I read Dostoevsky during one long, hot summer. It was an obsession, like reading Tolstoy. I called it my “Russian Novel Period.”
Then I went through a Joyce Carol Oates stage.
But after my lengthy years in school, and once I’d finished my master’s degree, I turned to lighter books. For awhile, I would read nothing but fluffy.
Nowadays, though, I like to intermingle my tales, with literary fiction, mysteries, contemporary fiction, and chick lit peppering my days and nights. Just to keep things interesting.
What about the rest of you? What do you enjoy?
