I often find fiction thought provoking. For example, I'm re-reading my favourite novel, "A Fine and Private Place" by Peter Beagle. I first read this about 30 years ago. Reading it when death is closer at hand changes the meaning, and I find myself frequently pausing and thinking about the ideas.

I do this pausing and thinking far more now when reading fiction, even when reading something like The Travelling Cat Chronicles. Maybe I've developed a more philosophical mind (Philosophy was one of the minor subjects I studied at Uni many years ago) or maybe it's just an excuse to pause and fuss a cat!

Bye the way, I would recommend that the OP reads Time Enough At Last by Lyn Venables. I think it's available on Project Gutenberg.

I went 20 years without reading mainly because I do not like the feel of books in my hands. I took a chance and bought the 2010 Nook and my reading took off. My first ebooks was The Inheritance Cycle and then the dark tower series. I broke my record and read around 37 books last year.
