She doesn't read fiction


Maybe it's because I read so much anyway, it doesn't occur to me to read for this kind of enjoyment.


I don't think I've ever been an avid fiction reader, now that I'm thinking about it. There's always been a discovery dimension to reading for me. It's always been about knowing more. Understanding more deeply, or at all.

And I suppose it's about what other people think too.
