Booking Through Thursday — Make Your Choice

btt button

God* comes to you and tells you that, from this day forward, you may only read ONE type of book–one genre–period, but you get to choose what it is. Classics, Science-Fiction, Mystery, Romance, Cookbooks, History, Business … you can choose, but you only get ONE.

What genre do you pick, and why?

*Whether you believe in God or not, pretend for the purposes of this discussion that He is real.

My first thought when I heard this question was this really seemed more Old Testament than New Testament view of God….

And that it’s just cruel to force me to choose only one type of book.

I’d have to go with science-fiction, I think. But that’s only my decision right now and could change if I read a really great mystery or other kind of book in the next few days….

  1. Hmm. You’re the only person I’ve seen to choose sci-fi! It is a rather wide genre, though, I suppose. My choice is here.

  2. I also struggled with the whole Old Testament idea — I wondered about trying to bargain with God. 🙂

    Glad I found your blog!

    Here is my BTT answer on Rose City Reader.

  3. I like the textual analysis (ha-ha).
