Feature & Follow Friday



This weeks question

Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?

Self - help books, I just can't get down with someone telling people the right way to live, how too change this or that. The whole genre seems contrived and preachy, two things I just can't get down with. Other then that I'd pretty much read anything as long as it sounded interesting. Oh, and instruction manuals, for electronics and the like. Never read one in my life! LOL

  6. Not a fan of self help books either. Never could take them seriously. It'd be hard for me to take advice from a complete stranger out of a book.

  7. I can handle some self-help books, as long as they aren't preachy, like you said. I mainly steer away from anything non-fiction.
