*nods* I find that happening a lot these days.
I've actually got into the bad habit of being really
conservative with my reading; there's one author I adore, where I must have read some of his novels at least 40 times (and that's a conservative estimate) and even the ones I don't particularly like about six or seven times.
The thing is, some people want to read novels that make them think
. I sort of don't... if I want to read things that make me think I tend to focus on non-fiction, especially philosophy and political/economic comment and analysis. That doesn't mean I'm only looking at the pop-corn flick version of literature but making me think
isn't a big incentive. I want my novels like I want my art or my music or my film or any other form of creative media... I want them to make me feel
. And I know
that the author in question and the books in question make me feel
, even if only for specific scenes.
