BTT – Lit-Ra-Chur

  • 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?


When someone says “literature,” I generally take it to mean the classics. I should probably broaden my definition, but that’s really the first thing I think of when I hear the word “literature.”

LOL! Um, no. I do not read my definition of “literature” : classics. Some of the classics are okay, others I just cannot get past the language. I’ve had Les Miserables on my nightstand for 4 months and have only made it to page 27. (I officially gave up last week). Now, give me a classic like Huckleberry Finn or To Kill a Mockingbird and I’m fine. But I really don’t like the really super classic classics. If that makes any sense?! Haha!
