I recently graduated university, and am spending my time reading up on classic and popular literature (ie 100 books before I die, and then some). Basically, people told me that I couldn’t keep insulting books until I had read them. I said: challenge accepted.
My native habitat is the cafe, although I’m predisposed to drinking large amounts of tea. This means that when I travel, my foremost goal (other than checking out hidden shopping precincts) is to discover new coffee/tea shops.
To be honest, I dislike the majority of literature for reasons being:
a) the writing is pretentious
b) the “meaningful and thought-provoking” plot is boring
c) classics, whilst being groundbreaking for their time, are often difficult to get through today; and
d) all of the above
I’m attempting to challenge my preconceptions, so wish me luck (I’m going to need it when I reach Jane Austen)!
