in reply to The sort of fiction you're most likely to find me reading:
I immediately parsed the list for the Classics, but, at the risk of offending, I only saw Ulysses (Joyce or Homer--doesn't matter), War &.+, Taming.+, and Rime.+. What about T. Hardy, George Eliot (read all of hers a couple of years ago--amazing insights) or the American, Edith Wharton? To quote Steve Martin, "I'm into language...ahhhhhhhh, ummmmm." To quote my kids, "Yeah, whatev."
Point is, read some fiction--great analog activity needed by all us digitial divas.
