Q: How have your reading habits changed in the past few years? Did you get interested in a new genre? Do you read more? Less? Why do you think your habits changed, if they did.
A: My reading habits have changed a lot. Several years ago, I used to not like reading books in a series back to back. Now, if I can, I prefer reading them back to back.
Last year, the New Adult genre exploded onto the scene, and I found myself reading a lot more NA than YA for the first time ever. I still love YA - I'll always have a special place for YA in my heart forever and ever. ;)
Since last summer, I've started reading a LOT more - I can read a book three hundred pages or less in one night. It'll take me about five or six hours, and I usually start around 10pm when the kids are in bed and everything is done for the night. I used to be a super slow reader because I thought I had missed something and would go back only to realize I hadn't missed anything at all. So essentially I was reading books twice over!
I was totally against eReaders when they first came out, but then I borrowed my friend's Kindle and changed my mind. I really believe if I hadn't gotten a Kindle, I might not have become a blogger or been able to discover so many awesome indie authors. Ninety-nine percent of the review books I receive are eBooks! There's room for physical books and eBooks in my life, lol. ;)
eReaders and blogging are definitely the two biggest reasons my reading habits have changed, and I wouldn't want things to be any other way. I really couldn't imagine going back to my life before blogging.
How about you? Have your reading habits changed, and why or why not? How have they changed or how have they stayed the same?
