Sometimes I find myself envious of non-writing friends who read books simply for the pure enjoyment of reading. They don't pick apart plots, examine hooks, analyze themes, or evaluate characters. It's all about the experience--of reading words that make your imagination soar and finding satisfaction in those words.
The only genre I can dive into for the pure pleasure of reading is mystery. I recently discovered author Ian Rankin's Detective Rebus series, and I have to tell you that I adore these books. I don't examine, analyze, or evaluate. I just read. And read. And read.
How about you? What do you read for pleasure?
