BBAW Day 3: Unexpected Treasure

BBAW 2010Today’s prompt:

We invite you to share with us a book or genre you tried due to the influence of another blogger.  What made you cave in to try something new and what was the experience like?

I don’t have a blogger that has directly influenced this, but this year I’ve discovered travelogues.  I’ve seen lots of bloggers enjoying travelogues, Eva, Candace, and Belle to name a few, both on blogs and on Twitter, and I thought I would try one for myself.  I started with Bill Bryson as lots of people seem to love his writing, and as expected I found him quite humorous.  In the process I discovered that I love to read about people visiting places, especially if I can’t visit them myself, and they’re excellent for deciding where I *do* want to go in the future.  I have mainly been stocking up from the library and have a number of travelogue reviews to share with you over the next few weeks, so if you haven’t gotten into this genre yet yourself you may soon.

Otherwise, I really think I’ve tried most types of books and firmly established what I do and don’t like, but there will always be space for more, and I’ll keep on reading everything as long as I can!
