It's been quite some time since I've participated in Booking Through Thursdays. I've always loved to reflect on and ponder questions like these.
Sometimes when I try to engage the Handyman in my thinking and reflecting process, he gets a worried look in his eyes. (sometimes not, but most of the time, yes) As if I'm going to make him discuss "feelings" again.
NO worries Handyman (as I know he reads my blog faithfully), today I will reflect and ponder with other Booking Through Thursday people. And here is our BTT question for today:
Of the books you own, what’s the biggest category/genre?
Is this also the category that you actually read the most?
Interestingly the biggest genre of books that I own are cookbooks. I have about 250 of them right now. Yes, YES, YES. I know. Nobody in their right mind needs 250 cookbooks (as a side note tho, we are having new cupboards built and he is going to build me a wall to ceiling bookcase, so I can house ALL my cookbooks in one place and will not have to move and transfer and look into big plastic blue tubs under my bed for cookbooks anymore).
But I love them, so .... what's the problem?
Moving away from cookbooks, (because I know that Booking Through Thursday is really a meme about books and not cooking, ) I would have to say that the genre` or category I have the most books of are series mystery/suspense. I do love continuing characters and I love to see how they develop over the course of a series.
I'm not sure I read that genre` "the most", but I never sell them in yard sales....which I will do once in while in a moment of insanity.
Like when I did the 3day/60mile walk for breast cancer a couple of years ago. I had a BOOKS FOR BOOBS sale, and used all that money for my financial goal for the 3 day walk.
Yes, I love my books, but I figured if cancer survivors can be so courageous, I can sacrifice some of my books.
That was my thinking.
But I miss some of them.
oh well, too many books, too little time, as they say.
