When you read for pleasure, what do you reach for?


In trying to discover my niche outside of SEO and HP writing, I am reaching out to my beloved HP community. My question is this: when you read for pleasure and are not supporting hubbers, what is it you like to read? Techy stuff? How-to's? Funny? Informative? Fiction? Life lessons? Politics? or (what I'm leaning towards) the lighter/brighter side of life? Please feel free to be honest and add the category you are drawn towards.

    I agree with you on the politics. I hate politics and I'm fed up with all the political crap flying around!

    Lady, you need to follow your passion. Writers are avid readers and that often leads to a passion for writing. You need to speak you passion to readers in order to be read. Additiionally,you need to wirite your passion in order to be heard.

    Thanx, Jordan. I think that's a little out of my league as a writer, but we should never underestimate our abilities, right?

    Randi, I prefer fiction also. What sort of articles do you read in the paper or in magazines?

    Lisa, would you read a weekly feature in the newpaper that was fun and highlighted the bright side of life? That's what I'm thinking about. I'm just so tired of reading about the corruption and destruction in this world.

    In today's age and even before, that's often the case. Remember The Thornbirds?

    Thanx for your response, Dan. I'm not familiar with Neil Gaimon. I'll have to look into him.

    I write poetry and have published a book of my compilations. Now I'm moving onto stage 2 of my dream and am trying to determine the most lucrative avenue that feeds my creativity at the same time. Thanx so much for your comment!

    Jim, I'm a fan of King's also. My favorite author in that genre is Dean Koontz. Thanx for your feedback.

    That is odd you say that, MCF. I like fiction, too. What's odd is that I have decided to write about the lighter/brighter side of life. How did you manage to get inside my head?

    I'm not sure what you mean. I don't read Nirvana.
