This week’s musing asks…BTW it is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading
I really don't think I have too much of a problem with "book police." I know what I like to read, and therefore, I am more or less my own "book police." There are certain genres I don't, and won't read, because they are not something I would enjoy. I have had ones who read these genres telling me what a good book it was and insisting I had to read it. But as far as other people reading those genres I really don't care.
I always tell the friends who borrow my books, "I am not your censor, if you start to read a book of mine and don't like it, don't feel you have to finish reading it." I have always been more or less my own person, so don't really care what others think about my reading material.
My daughter and I decided a few years ago, we will read what we want, and not feel it is necessary to share what we are reading with anyone. I do share a lot of what I read for recreation and entertainment here on my blog, however, that is for my own benefit, to help me remember what the books are about, and to remember what I read. I found that a few times I have bought the same book a year or two later, forgetting that I had already read it.
How about you, do you have "book police" wrinkling their noses at what you read?
