[admin post] [sticky entry] Admin Post: Sticky: Welcome

Hello, and welcome to Bite-Sized Reading! [community profile] bitesizedreading was inspired by [community profile] bitesizedcleaning and has been created to offer encouragement and support to anyone who loves to read.

Sometimes it seems like the only reading that "counts" is either weighty non-fiction or novel-length literary fiction. But those who love to read often have a diverse array of reading interests, from poetry to fanfic to newspapers to web comics.

This community is intended to provide a way to remind ourselves that all reading, whether it's short stories, articles in magazines, fanfic, Dreamwidth posts or the instructions on a packet of instant noodles, counts as reading. Sometimes we have the energy to read an entire novel in a day. Sometimes we don't have the energy or the time to expend on getting into lengthy written works. Here, we celebrate the reading we've done without passing judgment on the word count or the content. Please join us!

If you would like to help administrate the community or with Daily Reading posts on a particular day, please message [personal profile] nanila.

bluegreen17: (Snoopy Reads)

how we choose what we read

 this is a snippet of a comment i just wrote and i thought it might be a good question/topic for this comm.

 a lot of the time i choose my reading...especially fiction...by how much i like the writing regardless of topic,pretty much. i don't know what that says about me or if other folks do that.

for instance,years ago i read a bunch of books about planes and aviation because i liked richard bach's writing. recently,i read 'reamde' by neal stephenson,which i would say is an action/thriller,even though that's not usually my favorite type of book,because i love how neal stephenson writes.
