We’re discussing genres that we read and why. I read a lot of different kinds of stories but I guess you can fit all of those down into two or three genres with multiple subgenres. I read childrens , historical, and romance.
Why do I read books in these genres? I enjoy childrens books because they tend to be a wonderful escape. Currently, I’m reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to my youngest. We read a chapter every night before bed. Its a wonderful way to escape from everything that is going on at the moment. I love rereading books that I loved as a child, I get to go on an adventure all over again. Discovering new adventures that I can share with my kids.
I read historical because I enjoy history. Its a great way to learn about a different way of life while being entertained.
I read romance because it tends to be uplifting. I can usually count on a happy ending at the end of all the struggle.
