This week’s musing asks…
Do you prefer deep, intellectual, “meaty” books… or light, “fluffy” books? Why? Give us an example of your preferred type of book.
My answer to this really depends on my mood when I pick up a book. I don’t like books too ‘fluffy’ since they would probably be so light on content I wouldn’t be able to stand it enough to keep my interest throughout the whole book. Chick lit is actually that sort of genre, which I feel is too sappy and weak at times. But that’s not to say that there aren’t any chick lit authors who haven’t surprised me. Tara Hyland
is one, and so is Kathy Lette
On the other end of the scale, there are intellectual, meaty books, which I do enjoy a lot. If given only two choices, it would be this type I picked up… but for me, these would mostly be non-fiction. An example is anything by Richard Dawkins. The God Delusion and The Greatest Show on Earth (The Evidence for Evolution) fit this meaty category very well.
