I usually read a couple of YA novels every month as well as a few early readers and occasional picture books, but those aren't the main way I feed my bookaholic appetite either.
Every week I read about half a dozen middle grade novels.
Why, you may ask, do I read so many books intended for kids?
Well, I could say it's because I write for kids so reading those keeps me aware of the genre, and that's true, but it's only part of the reason.
Mostly I read middle grade novels because I can usually finish a whole book in an hour or two without having to put it down in the middle, and I know it won't be sordid or depressing. And I'm still a kid at heart and enjoy being carried away into the worlds of children's lives and adventures. Reading fiction for kids is just, plain fun!
