Kam Raslan, A Bit of Culture

By the Book: Leaving the Reading Comfort Zone

Most of us have our comfort zones when it comes to reading - those genres that we gravitate towards or pretty much stick to because of their familiar pleasures. But how easy is it to venture outside of these? A Bit of Culture’s Kam Raslan joins us to discuss how these comfort zones get created and perpetuated, and the challenges of reading books that we don’t instantly feel an affinity for.
