Yes, we've all been told that we must read in order to write better. But as far as reading from all genres goes, That is one I have yet to hear. I seem to read just about everything, though reading some genres is rare. I recently listened to the audiobook of Joyce Meyer's self-improvement book Eat the Cookie, Buy the Shoes. I rarely read these kind of books, but getting out of your reading comfort zone is good once in a while. Also, I fellow client at behavioral health likes reading Joyce Meyer, so I decided to give reading some of her stuff a try. This is only the second book of Meyer's I have attempted.
Westerns is another genre I have not read a lot of. In order to push myself to read more of this genre, I chose to sign up for the Wild Wild West Reading Challenge. I have yet to read anything for this particular genre this year, but in the past two years, I have listened to some audiobooks of Western stories.
What genres do you read less often?
