Age-Appropriate

btt button

Do you read books “meant” for other age groups? Adult books when you were a child; Young-Adult books now that you’re grown; Picture books just for kicks … You know … books not “meant” for you. Or do you pretty much stick to what’s written for people your age?

  7. My (sorta disjointed) post is up here: http://comicreviewsbywalt.wordpress.com/2011/05/12/booking-through-thursday-age-appropriate/

    Basically, I read whatever’s appealing to me–always have–which pretty much translates to this adult reading like a kid-at-heart in the YA stuff.

  19. I really don’t pay much attention to this, mostly because I can enjoy any type of book. So here’s my answer: http://florestadelivros.blogspot.com/2011/05/booking-through-thursday-apropriado.html

  20. Not really. I’ll probably be reading YA books when I’m an adult though. I’m perfectly content in this genre!

  23. I originally said “no”. But after some consideration I realized that was a lie and changed it to “sometimes”.

  24. After Bloggers snafu, people who use it may have to repost their comments.
    My answer is now at http://thechildrenswar.blogspot.com/2011/05/booking-through-thursday-age.html

    My apologies if you left a message yesterday, Blogger deleted them.

  25. I read whatever is interesting. If it’s good. It gets read. Even some of the books I prefer, can end up being a dud. So I try to keep an open mind. I love YA, and I read middle grade because I have kids. I like to know what they are reading and be able to discuss it with them.

  26. Although technically and legally an adult, I love YA and children’s books.
