This week’s random topic is: What’s your favorite genre? Why?
Science-fiction is my favorite genre. It’s the section of the bookstore or library that I gravitate toward first (assuming they have a separate section for sci-fi, of course!) and that I enjoy browsing to find new works, catch up on some of the previous novels I’ve missed or consider re-reading. There are a lot of things I enjoy about the genre — the diversity of authors and stories, the exploration of the future and making predictions about what could be around the next corner. I also enjoy that the stories and novels can be the starting point for conversations and deeper looks at the meanings behind things or the commentary it could be making on our world today. And sometimes there are just some thrilling stories that keep the pages turning.
