Reader Eccentric...

The past couple of weeks I read a lot of books, non-fiction, fiction, romance, poetry, AA authors, non-AA, newspapers and magazines...
Someone called me an Eccentric Reader...
I am, I read what I want, when I want...
I curiously asked the person, what made me eccentric,
They told me because I didn't choose...
Choose What?
Choose to read only AA, or only mainstream or only literary, romance,,,what?
They said, 'Yeah'
I said, 'No'...
I told them I read as I live,
I have a diverse group of people in my life...
From everywhere and anywhere,
All they have to be is honest, open and willing...
And my heart and arms are open to them,
The same is true for books,
It simply has to grab me, touch me, make me think, smile, cry gasp...FEEL,
And I will read it,
Feel the same about music...
So yea I guess that makes me a Reader Eccentric,
If you need to give me a title...
I refuse to give myself one or anyone else one for that matter...
I guess that is why when I see topics online about certain types of books,
I steer clear of those...
Simply because I know on any given day,
I am open to reading all of it...at least once...
Because I know, you can hardly ever tell a book by it's cover...
And a risk to open the pages, just might change how you feel...

Blessings,

I read all kinds of books, but I do have preferences when it comes to pleasure reading because I have so little time for it these days. I'll read anything from Literary to nonfiction. Written by folks of any color. But I've found that when I have a spare moment and I pick up a book to read just for me, it always just happens to be a work of commercial fiction by an African American author. As for music, I love all kinds of music, all kinds but I have to say that black music makes up the majority of my collection. But if someone looked at my music collection they'd also find some country, rock, indie rock...

Diversity is the spice of life, AA Books, Music, et al is the vast majority of all I have, I just love that I can make other choices...
