I have always loved reading. I find that reading lets me explore places I might want to travel, imagine cultures that I’d like to experience (or avoid in some cases) and generally expand my interests and knowledge.
I like most genres and find that I particularly like to read a wide variety of books by diverse authors, from gardening, cooking, travel, fiction, mysteries, self-improvement, business topics, etc. with the occasional “smutty romance” novel when I want entertainment without thinking too much.
