“When somebody mentions “literature,” what’s the first thing you think of? (Dickens? Tolstoy? Shakespeare?) Do you read “literature” (however you define it) for pleasure? Or is it something that you read only when you must?”
Literature makes me think of the horrible books we read in English class. Sometimes it makes me think of the “classics” but for the most part, the only thing that comes to mind are school books. I’ve read some classics for pleasure (Pride & Prejudice, Little Women, The Scarlet Letter) but usually it’s a must kind of situation.
