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!

  1. Some books are just not worth getting through and each of us has to decide that individually. I haven’t yet heard of a book that absolutely everyone has liked!

  2. We all have our limits! 🙂 I’ll stick my neck out and say that even those of us with a larger definition of “literature” will often think of the “classics” first when we hear the word.
