An update on what I read. I love to read literature. Yes, the snobby kind mostly. No, not English Literature all the time.I only allow myself to smutt around his world for awhile (one novel a year). My first attraction to a novel--always character development. I love characters and I do distinguish them from people. Mainly, I hate people. Favorite female character: heroine of Kate Chopin's "The Awakening".
