Most of the themes here at the carnival have to do with the hosts sharing our favorite kind of books. Nicole takes a different tack, and looks at sharing a particular reading experience, one that transcends genre.
I spend quite a bit of time every months reading books that I might not necessarily read, and I often feel compelled to ask my guests what books they have discovered which they wouldn’t necessarily read or place in their comfort zone, but which nevertheless, they have enjoyed.
and so the common thread for this edition of the carnival is to talk about that experience, of reading something you don’t normally, and what you might get out of that. Eight bloggers answered the call, and Nicole does a wonderful job of pulling the essence of each post into her round-up, so not only are you tempted to go visit each of the contributing bloggers (and you should!) but the carnival itself is an interesting read on its own.
[Edit] D’OH!! I can’t believe I didn’t include a link. Departing the Comfort Zone. Good grief.
