[QUOTE=HomeInMyShoes;2228163]Actually, it's an interesting question. I was outside a few weeks back and my neighbour was reading on his front step and I asked what he was reading. His reply of "oh, just some fiction" made me stop and think. Do we really value plain old stories so little? I know I don't.



No matter what the book is, highbrow or otherwise, sometimes I am just not interested in having a conversation about it. If somebody asked what I was reading and I made a reply like "just some fiction" - that would be my way of trying to avoid further conversation without actually saying "please leave me alone, I don't want to talk about it!"
