Have your book-tastes changed over the years? More fiction? Less? Books that are darker and more serious? Lighter and more frivolous? Challenging? Easy? How-to books over novels? Mysteries over Romance? – BTT

Well, if I compare it to ten years ago, then yes of course. I use to read more teen/young adult fiction, but now I don’t. I read more classics, challenging and darker books, but I still read a lot of fluffy books. In some ways, it seems I have changed, but in a lot of ways I have not; I still seem to like both easy and challenging books, fluffy and serious. I read far more nonfiction now than I did years ago. I probably also read less fantasy than I did as a kid, but I still read quite a bit of it. Most of my preferences have not changed drastically; I still like a lot of the same things that I did. Most of my tastes have expanded rather than reduced and the books account for it.
