Follow Friday asks this week: What makes up your non-human family?
Nothing. I don't own a pet, nor do I wish to. I really don't like dogs and cats freak me out as well. Also, I am gone for two months during the summer and so I don't see the need to have a pet around.
The question posed this week is: Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?
I read quite a few different genres, so I can't say that I read just one type of genre specifically. But I suppose if you have to ask what genre that I read the most prolifically and have read for the longest time its Christian fiction. I have read it for about 15 years on a regular basis, despite the objections that I have about the genre as a whole. I have cut back and don't read it as often as I once did, but I still read the occasional book. I primarily read it because I see it on a regular basis when I go to church on the weekends. What draws me to it is that occasionally I will find a book that I will really enjoy and not feel as though it is a cliched, Christian novel.
