A reader who’ll try anything once, including bad books in search of good ones. Eclectic as her tastes are, she tends to gravitate to historical romances, realistic contemporaries, and some fantasy novels.
I listened to the LibrioVox recordings of Walter Besant's both lectures and Henry James' response to them. Basically, I spent an hour and a half listening a pompous arse drone about his curious ideas of what fiction should be like and spent another hour listening the most eloquent fuck you I've had the pleasure to "read" in a long while.
If you have three hours to kill, I recommend.
