Alternating Genres

From now on I’m not going to read two books in a row from the same genre unless they are part of a series.  I just can’t keep the story lines and characters straight in my head.  I’m confusing sunflower plants from Larry Niven’s Ringworld with those thorny border bushes in John Lenahan’s Shadowmagic.  Okay, I suppose those are different genres.

At one time I had a strict policy of reading no more than one work of  fiction for every nonfiction book I read.  Somewhere along the lines I ditched that rule because there was so much sci-fi I wanted to read.  I may bring back a modified (and more fiction-friendly) version of that rule.
