Re: Is it okay to still read books meant for younger audiences as an adult?

We live in a *relatively* free world, so read what you want really. I personally only read YA when I'm forced to, because the ''adult'' Sci-Fi and Fantasy books seem to be better constructed. There's less commercial-lit there. But there's quite a bit of crossover - I mean you get adults reading Harry Potter, and His Dark Materials (I first discovered HDM in the adult fantasy section). You also get kids reading David Eddings, George R.R. Martin, not to mention J R.R. Tolkien.

I only get disturbed when I see adults reading Enid Blyton. There's a line, you know?
