This week's question: Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?
This used to be an easy question for me because I pretty much only used to read romances. In the past few years, I've branched out a lot and have such eclectic tastes that I'll read pretty much anything - paranormal/supernatural, fantasy, science fiction, young adult, chick lit - but I am still a sucker for romance. I remember years ago when I decided to start reading something other than young adult books, one of the first books I read was Heart of the Sea by Nora Roberts. My Grama had borrowed it from the library and after reading the dust jacket, I thought it sounded great, so I read it and fell in love. I realized afterward that it was the last in a trilogy, so I went back to the beginning and read the first two - and the 3rd book again - and have read them several times over the years. That started my love affair not only with romance novels, but also with Nora Roberts - her writing is incredible, and she's one of my biggest inspirations. As I told my cousin Bertha yesterday, I want to be Nora Roberts when I grow up! lol

This week's question: How many books are currently in your to-be-read (TBR) pile?
My actual physical pile? Eleven - all library books that I've obsessive-compulsively collected over the last few weeks even though I'm a slow reader and won't be able to get through them all. As for my TBR list, probably over a thousand, and growing every day. When Facebook used to have the Virtual Bookshelf feature, I had about 900 books in my TBR list, and it's grown massively since then, so I really can't even imagine how many there would be if I made a new list and counted! Maybe I should do that on GoodReads?
Have a great Friday, everyone! I'll be back tomorrow or Sunday with my latest Library Loot. If you participate in Book Blogger Hop or Follow Friday Fun - or even if you don't - be sure to leave a comment (I love comments!) and I'll visit you in return!
