These days, I find that my 'go-to' genre of books is 'fantasy.' However, I'm a bit disconcerted over that particular designation for what I read. The 'Twilight' Series, Harry Potter, and 'Alice in Wonderland' are all considered 'fantasy.' The books I read are a bit darker than those. Not only do the books I read have more blood and gore, but the characters tend to be harsher than the villains in some of the other 'fantasy' books. A lot of what I read has more demons and monsters--and a lot of what I read seems to have more religious-like themes, good vs evil. I understand how what I read is considered 'fantasy,' but calling the books such makes them sound much more lightweight than what they are. While I'm sure there are sub-divisions in the 'fantasy' category, I think the books that I read should be in a category of their own. However, I don't know what it could possibly be called.
While I haven't been reading as much as I would like, I get a chance to read every day. Since getting my NOOK and NOOKcolor--yes, I own both--I find that I'm not buying quite as many books. When I was only buying hard-copy books, I would get them as soon as I saw them. These days, with my NOOKs, I put whatever books I want on my WishList and then buy as I need. It is so much nicer to get the books as I want them, rather than stockpiling like I always have done. No matter what, I will never live long enough to read all of the books I own--whether they are hard-copies or ebooks.
