I need a good, solid read. I've got a few sci fis I got at the dollar store, which should be a good
way to spend to a few hours. I need more.
I need a good series--a Forsyte saga, a Strangers and Brothers, a Parade's End, a Barchester series. My favorite books are neither "high concept, high art"
cutting edge novels, nor "Mr. President, they've got one of our subs; not just any sub, it's a
Geo Metro 1.2 Liter!" action adventures. I like a good old fashioned "good intelligent read" bit of middlebrow long fiction. I am tempted to fashion an on line prayer about being granted the grace to find literature which fits my particular stick in the mud reading habits, but it just seems too "cute" to phrase it that way. Perhaps I can mangle a poem or Shakespeare instead...to read,
perchance to dream, of a well-plotted 10 to 12 volumes...
