Web designer Laura E. Kelly has created a whimsical chart called the Classification of Book Lovers & Other Readers.
Are you a purebred reader, never polluting your gene pool with works from another genre? Are you like me, a purebred mutt, free-ranging across all styles of books in pursuit of nothing save the pleasure of reading? I fancy myself a rule-breaker, crossing the lines to be a compulsive reader when the situation demands, cherishing and rescuing novels from the wastelands of neglect at Amazon or my local book seller.
Take a look at this chart and see where you fall in the Linnaean Hierarchy of Readers.
By the by, this chart is just a fantastical way of celebrating all the ways, shapes, and forms we readers take. Find yourself!
