The norm….?

Do you ever read books that are outside the norm for you? What books are outside the norm for you? Will you ever take the chance and read something outside your normal? Why or why not?

This is something that I haven’t done very often. I read “The Diary of Ann Frank” about 3 or 4 years ago and that’s something outside of what I normally read. There are certain genres I normally stick to like fantasy, horror, science fiction, mystery, or thriller/suspense. They all usually involve fiction in some form so “The Diary of Ann Frank” was something different for me. I had been wanting to read that book for a long, long while and I had never had the chance to until a few years ago.

What are some books that I can read that would be outside of the genres I normally read?

  1. Have you considered non-fiction adventure? I have a friend (I won’t promote her here) who lives on a sailboat and is an author of a few books talking about her adventures and experiences as she and her family sail the seas and visit other countries.

    I’m not into non-fiction too much and like you stick to the fantasy, horror, science fiction, mystery, or thriller/suspense. I think I keep to those because they’re safe for me in that I’m not too often disappointed. What bothers me the most is poor dialog or too many grammatical/spelling errors.

    1. I’ve read “Fort Whiskey” by David Banks, which is suppose to be based on a true story. That’s about the only book I’ve tried that can be considered non-fiction adventure. If you don’t count that book than the answer would be a “no” for sure.
