Musing Mondays

MUSING MONDAYS today asks… How has your reading changed over the years? Have you started reading more “meaty” books (books with more substance)? Or, have you gone to more “fluffy” reads? Perhaps you’ve done neither, and you’ve just always read the same type of thing! If that’s the case, why? Are you willing to step out of your reading ‘comfort zone’ and try something new? What would you recommend to someone who needed to “branch out”?

Interesting topic! First time playing Monday Musings so this should be interesting…

Here’s my non-uneducated response (think about that). The truth of the matter is lately my reading has gone to shorter works, and the reason for this is that I’ve been so darn busy I don’t have time to get into the “meatier” novels. I’ll read practically anything you put in front of me, but those shorter works are going to be pulled out of the TBR pile sooner than the longer ones and the longer ones tend to not get read in a few – errrr – lots of incidences.

I love substance, I love meat, and I envy those who can sit down to a 400 page novel and enjoy it without feeling rushed. I think I need a vacation. ;o)

  1. That is a good question. I think I still read pretty much the same and try to alternate between a meaty read and a fluffy one just so that I don’t get too entrenched either way. My current read, Recovering Charles, is a great story of hope, faith and second chances, and while it comes in at under 300 pages it’s one of the more emotionally meaty books I’ve read this year even though it’s not really long.

  2. Hey Dorothy,

    I didn’t know you had this blog!! Woo, at least I finally found it, huh? I participate in these memes, too. Nice to read your Musing Mondays thoughts.

    Best,
