Booking Through Thursday: Category


btt buttonOf the books you own, what’s the biggest category/genre? Is this also the category that you actually read the most?

scififantasybookclusterCategorically, I’d say “paperback.” That includes the “mass market” variety as well as graphic novels/comics’ collected editions.

Comics/collected editions/graphic novels certainly have it over prose.

Fiction has it over non-fiction.

Mass market paperback has it over trade paperback.

Fantasy has it over Sci-fi.

In the graphic novels, DC has it over Marvel. As far as hardcover graphic novels, Marvel has it over DC.

Super-heroes have it over non-super-heroes.

And in the non-graphic novels/comics, Sci-Fi/Fantasy would be the dominant genre.

Within that, Dragonlance has it over Magic: The Gathering; Dragonlance and Magic: The Gathering have it over everything else.

I’m thinking right now it’d be really cool to have actual NUMBERS to give based on those categories…but alas, that’s something I do not have. Someday I should attempt to re-create or update some sort of inventory of my collections.

As to reading…I think it’s safe to say that I still read more in the sci-fi/fantasy stuff than anything else. This year, I’ve been through The Last Days of Krypton (sci-fi), Dragons of the Highlord Skies and Dragons of the Hourglass Mage (fantasy) vs. The Summons and The Litigators (Grisham) and The Inner Circle (Meltzer), The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and The Walking Dead: The Rise of the Governor. Everything else offhand I either have not finished yet (The Overton Window, The Wastelands, Robopocalypse, The Lost Hero) or would be comics/graphic novels.
