I dedicate this post to all my fellow bookworms who believe the book was better.

What if you could only read your favorite genre for the rest of your life, what would it be? For my movie watching nonreaders, what would be your favorite movie genre?

Recently this was a conversation starter on a local morning radio station. I wanted to ask my online friends the same question to help stir up ideas for my next summer read.

My Favorite Genre

If I could only read one genre for the rest of my life, it would be historical fiction.

I’m hooked on the Maggie Hope Mystery series by Susan Elia MacNeal.

Maggie Hope is a secretary turned secret agent working for Winston Churchill in the 1940s.
