Book Blogger Hop June 24

 The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy @ the Ramblings of a coffee addict. . Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

This week ‘s question is:

This weeks question is:  What is your reading preference – fiction or nonfiction? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer

My reading preference is definitely fiction. I love the way authors transport you to different places and introduce you to characters and situations you would never otherwise meet.

I do enjoy non fiction though. When I was teaching full time, I spent hours reading books about teaching but before I became a teacher I used to read a wider range of non fiction regularly. I’ve tried to pick up the habit again this year and I’ve joined the Nonfiction Reader Challenge hosted by Shelleyrae at Bookd out to help keep my resolution. So far this year, I’ve read 6 non fiction and I’ve just picked up another one from the library so I feel I’m achieving challenge.

What’s your reading preference?

  1. Your answer doesn’t surprised me. I have read several Book Blogger Hopper and they all answer fiction, which is also my answer as well. Fiction is great for escaping and right now, I think everyone needs that.

    Have a lovely day.

  2. I could just say ditto for your comment, Janette. Because I was an administrator for the last few years of my education career, I also read a lot of books about being a leader and encouraging others as well as teaching. I have also joined the Non-Fiction challenge and set a goal to read 2 non-fiction books per month. I am behind right now, as I have only read 9 and should be at 12, but I have read 12 kid’s non-fiction as well.
