This is another of the easier posts on the blog challenge for me to write…
Don’t judge me for what I’m about to say!
I HAVE NEVER READ THE CLASSICS!!!!
I know what I like to read, and period drama just isn’t it. I’m sure they’re wonderful, if you like that sort of thing, but I don’t.
Back in school, we had to study Wuthering Heights. I’ll be honest, I can’t even remember which Brontë wrote it. I’ve had to google it, apparently it’s Emily.
Now, this version looks beautiful, I can’t deny that. I will put my hand up and say I didn’t even read it in school when we were supposed to. I got bored of it very quickly, so I just used the Internet to find out what I needed to know to pass my exams. When I hear Wuthering Heights mentioned, I think Kate Bush, not Emily Brontë!
This leads me to my next question…
I have read hundreds of books. I’ve read Shakespeare, Victor Hugo, Louisa May Alcott among many contemporary authors.
Am I still not well read just because I don’t enjoy literary sagas?
I understand plenty of people love the classics. I don’t judge anyone based on the books that they read.
Reading is reading.
