Today's topic - Things I Wished More Books Talked About - really was a challenge. I read fiction for entertainment and escape primarily. I'm not much interested in books being a vehicle for any issue - whether I agree with said issue or not. Books that are heavy-handed in focusing on an issue are automatically rated down by me, should I be reading the book for review.
That being said, I love books with animals and kids in them. I love a good old-fashioned family saga (think Barbara Taylor Bradford). I want a book to transport me to another place and time - (Take me away, Calgon!)
Just don't try to teach me things at the same time - unless you can do it subtly.
What about you?
