Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday!
And thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this awesome weekly meme!
This week’s question:
Top Ten Words/Topics That Will Make You NOT pick up a book
Sorry cowboys and cowgirls, but I’m not usually interested in Westerns.
Much to the heartbreak of my father who dreamed of being a cowboy when he was young.
And enjoys watching reruns of Bonanza on television.
2. North Korea
I just found this out about myself. For book club, my good friend N picked a very well written book, critically acclaimed, award winning novel about North Korea. And while it deserves the praise, I have to say that I was pretty depressed reading this book.
3. Horror, specifically Fast Moving Zombies
Yes, I do read the occasional horror. But it’s really not my genre. I’m scared easily, especially since watching 21 Days Later. Fast moving zombies are the stuff that gives me nightmares.
4. Self Help
I’m going to admit – I read a lot of Self Help books when I was younger. (Particularly SARK with her colorful writing and positive affirmations.)
That said, nowadays I steer clear of that section.
Sorry peeps but religious media books are not my cup of tea. I do not read TV evangelist’s books.
Books about religion are different and I’m very interested in clear and concise writing about different religions. But if you’re going to preach, preach to someone else.
