Around 25 years ago, while I was working in an academic library, one of the English professors came in to check out some books to read on a long flight. I happened to ask if she had read the latest book by some author. I don’t remember the title of the book or the author, but I do remember her response.
She informed me that SHE did not read general fiction as it had “ABSOLUTELY NO LITERARY MERIT.”
Do you read non-fiction?
Have you ever read a classic?
Do you enjoy reading fiction?
