Book blog News and Crazy-for-Books

If you would like to post links to your giveaways,book reviews,challenges, memes,etc.... see the post below this one.(Book BLog News)

the question this week  is "Why do you read the genre that you like?What draws you to it?
I love reading Adult literature, emphasis on the word literature.  I am not interested in books that are just
popular because what is  bestselling isn't always  literary.  I love authors who know how to write a good plot,believable conversations,  and imagery.  The writing should swallow me whole.  I should be burning the meatloaf I am
cooking because I can't pull myself away from the story to check on it.  I want to finish the book with the
characters  still on my mind   ,even after I have  read the books weeks ago.  I read Christian books mostly to see how other Christians  live and as for mysteries well I just  like to  see the cops catch the bad guy!

I love what you said about burning the meatloaf! That's what books should be doing for us.

Here I am hopping on by...

I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and see for yourself.
