Count me as obsessed! I hardly ever read non-fiction (except the newspaper, and the non-fiction element is questionable) and even less often poetry.Originally Posted by Eric
I don't count myself as well-read necessarily. Some of my friends would, but it is only relative. Some of my face-to-face book group only read the one book a month that we do together. To them I am well-read.
I read novels because I love to read novels. For me it is a hobby. I didn't study literature, nor will I ever, most likely. A side effect of my obsession with novels is that I love to discuss them with people, hence my hope for more group reads on the forum.
Knowing that more recent authors can be and are considered classics, I'd say I probably prefer classic to non-classic, but not when considering what I thought was meant by classic when I started this discussion.
A roundabout sentence that I hope makes sense?
