:booking: What was the most unusual (for you) book you ever read? Either because the book itself was completely from out in left field somewhere, or was a genre you never read, or was the only book available on a long flight… whatever? What (not counting school textbooks, though literature read for classes counts) was furthest outside your usual comfort zone/familiar territory?
And, did you like it? Did it stretch your boundaries? Did you shut it with a shudder the instant you were done? Did it make you think? Have nightmares? Kick off a new obsession?
Hmm, as far as I know, I haven’t read any weird books. I’ve read good books and bad books, long books and short books, tall books and short books and many, many, Dr. Suess books ;), but I tend to take books at face value and so I don’t consider them “weird”. It may be that I just like a lot of different kinds of books: Robert Ludlum, Stephen King, Nora Roberts, Sharon Kay Penman, Diana Gabaldon, Robert Heinlein–all good, mostly different, and not weird at all.
