Booking Through Thursday 9/25/2008

: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.

  1. That’s good that you are open to different book. I said one of the books that I read this year and thought weird was Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut.

  2. LOL That was a good answer. I loved the rhyming. I’d like to think I’m open to all kinds of books but I’m not big on chick lit, romance and too much historical fiction. I’ll read all kinds of non-fiction though! Any topic!
