#LetsDiscuss2020 – Are You a Genre Snob? – TCL’s #DiscussionSunday #7.

Good post! I confess to being a snob about a lot of “literary
fiction” and avoid most of it like the plague we’re currently experiencing.
Also draw the line at most romance but erotica is the only subgenre of
romance I won’t read at all. Otherwise, I’m open to most genres,
especially mystery, comfort, Southern, historical, science fiction.

My fellow blogger Katie @ Never Not Reading recently wrote a post on levels of genre snobbery where she listed and described four levels from the least to the worst of them, in her opinion. They were:

  • Level one: Non-Snob
  • Level two: Romance-Hater
  • Level three: The Ageist
  • Level four: The True-Snob

The post is worth reading and I encourage you all to do so, as well as the comments it received. Of course, it made me think, which brings me to this post, to ask the question…

Are You a Genre Snob?

  1. According to her scale, I’m mostly non-snob. I have my favorite genres and a few I won’t read, but I don’t care what anybody else is reading. I like mysteries, romance, sci fi/fantasy and YA that falls in sci fi/fantasy. I like some non-fiction, particularly science-related, and, rarely, a memoir or biography. I like a good discussion about books no matter what genre. Where I’m not as non-snob is being open to new genres. I don’t like books that are trendy or “everyone should read this.” Honestly, as long as people are reading, I don’t care what they’re reading.
