30 days of writing, day 8

8. What’s your favorite genre to write? To read?

Romance, and romance. Gosh, that was easy :D .

I realized something when I moved a few years ago: I owned a lot more books of non-fiction than I did of fiction. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course — I’ve always wanted a reference library of my very own — but it surprised me how I hang onto nonfiction more than novels.

Of course, now that five+ years have passed my fiction collection has expanded greatly, while my non-fiction collection has not, quite. I suspect it’s due mostly to using the internet for research now rather than buying a book when I want to learn about something new. I haven’t made the switch entirely to ebooks yet — I do buy them, but not as much as physical books — so my purchases there do tend to depend on how much space I’ve got in the bookcases.

I do love a good history book, though. Those make me quite happy. I prefer to write contemporaries but a lot of the romances I read are of the historical variety.
