March 3 question - Everyone has a favorite genre or genres to write. But what about your reading preferences? Do you read widely or only within the genre(s) you create stories for? What motivates your reading choice?
I read widely. I'm interested in many things and will read whatever piques my interest. I do have favorite genres to read. Fantasy, Science fiction, Historical top the list. I read books by Native American authors when I can find them.
My motivation for my reading choices is dependent on my mood, the time I have for reading, book covers, book blurbs, upon occasion a review on TV or blog, or Good Reads. Sometimes, it comes as a result of my searching for something else entirely, i.e. the black hole lying in wait for the unwary when one is desperately hunting for something to cook, write about, or any number of everyday chore lightening methods.
