I mentioned it briefly in another topic, but from time to time, I like to indulge in "garbage reads". Instead of being great literature or simply outstanding genre works, these are trashy, simplistic works, often written solely for the money. I will usually indulge in one of these garbage reads for every 4-5 more serious works. Personally, I find myself draw to autobiographies, particularly of athletes. While a few of these turn out to be surprisingly good (Open by Andre Agassi probably being the finest example), most are dumbed-down, very fast-paced affair light on intelligence. Nevertheless, they're enjoyable as a change of pace. Focus- What are some of your favorite genres and specific examples of garbage reads?
