Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. IT was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy@Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

This week’s topic is:

What was your favorite genre to read as a child? Do you still read that genre, or do you read something else now? (submitted by Mark @ Carstairs Considers)

My childhood was so long ago, but I will try to answer this question. I don’t remember having a favorite genre as a child. I do remember reading quite a variety of different things and there are a few that I still remember quite fondly. I do know that I tended to read many English authors like E. Nesbit, JRR Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and if course Roald Dahl. at the elementary level. But I also read quite a bit of historical and contemporary books of the time as well, such as Nancy Drew and The Bobbsey Twins.

When I reached high school, young adult wasn’t quite a genre yet. So I read what ever I could get my hands on. I went on quite a classics binge, and I mean classics like Man in the Iron Mask, Don Quixote and such. Many of these were hard, but I persevered through them. I also enjoyed many science fiction writers, like Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, and Arthur C Clarke.

I guess my reading has always been well rounded as I still enjoy reading many of those genres today. I have always read whatever I am interested in reading. As long as the story sounded good or the characters were interesting I was willing to give the book a try. I remember always being a voracious reader throughout my childhood and teenage years. Back then there wasn’t really all that much else to do. But I was always happy when I was reading a good book.
