Dear Wife and I were talking the other day about books, and about reading. We’re both pretty avid readers. But whereas I read almost exclusively in the speculative fiction genres, and venture outside those boundaries only rarely (if you’re going to read for enjoyment, you might as well read what you enjoy, and so I do), Dear Wife reads widely across many different genres, including non-fiction. As we were talking, Dear Wife commented that she didn’t want B.T. to read only fantasy and science fiction.
