Favorite Book Genre

I responded to one of my friend's facebook quiz which featured 52 books everyone is supposed to read atleast once in your lifetime. She had read half of them, and I had read a humbling 12. I could just be waiting for my next lifetime to catch up.

Anyway she asked me what is my favorite genre? The question is straight forward, but it is one that made me think.

My answer was adventure trop fiction. Examples would be Hemingway, Benchley, Steinbeck, and Bob Morris.

Really any adventure would work as I really enjoyed The Call of the Wild and The Kite Runner.

I didn't go into nonfiction on my facebook reply but I will here. It is split between music biographies. That being said if I find someone interesting who isn't in music I will read that biography too. As I mentioned before I do alot of reading on the subject of business. My favorite business books are on the subject of leadership.

Since the question was a good one in my opinion. I will ask you my readers what are your favorite genres? Just for fun if you answer and feel like sharing what is your favorite book or author in that genre?

I like mysteries and espionage. Eric Ambler, Raymond Chandler, Ian Fleming.

But the genre I read the most of is poetry.

Hi, Mike!

My dad's favorite genres were action and adventure - fiction and nonfiction. My favorite genres are suspense and psychological thrillers - fiction and nonfiction.

Happy Thursday, good buddy Mike!
