The type of literature you read, do you tend to read stuff that is popular with the crowd or with experts? Do you tend to read stuff that is a little less main stream? Why do you go with that over the other?
I’m a little of both. Some of the stuff I read can be considered main stream or well known (for example, the Harry Potter series, the Twilight series, the Chronicles of Narnia series, the Inheritance Cycle, etc.). However, I’ve also read some stuff that’s not as well known or as highly publicized. I also like to read books from local authors in my area because I believe in supporting local authors as much as I can.
I choose the books I read because they are books that seem interesting to me, not whether or not they’re popular. If the synopsis sounds interesting enough when I read it (does it capture my attention?) then it’ll come home with me….plain and simple. Yes, I do like to support local authors. But their works are something I’ve come to enjoy as well. I get a lot of enjoyment out of reading their books.
