I’m not sure I am a guru of any one genre. I am open to reading anything except science fiction and paperback romance novels.  Right now, I mostly read what my professors tell me to read.  When I do get the chance to read what I want, it is whatever is available on Hoopla or Overdrive. I prefer to listen to my books rather than to sit down and read them. I think this is because I spend so much time reading my class textbooks that I get tired of sitting.
