    Hi Darling Blogger,
    There is a repetition of a paragraph beginning “The female protagonist…”.
    I thought you might want to edit it out, unless it has a really emphatic point!
    Loved our conversation today and I love you!

    It’s good to remind oneself about the qualities of good literature. I have continually been challenged to think more deeply about issues through some of the ‘classics’. I choose literary fiction that challenges my perceptions of life, relationships. Issues like facing death and what is beyond (if anything) are not the subject of some of the ‘fluffy stuff’ in superficial fiction. It is satisfying to be challenged by quality literature; ‘great literature’. Thanks for your thought provoking article.
