That's a question I have already heard countless times. "Real" doesn't mean books in print or ebooks, no it means books that are more than the romantic crap (not my words) I'm reading.
There are two persons in particular who whenever I meet them ask me if I finally read some "real" literature. Most of the times I manage to keep calm and carry on but sometimes I get a bit bitchy. And when I ask them who decides what "real" literature is they have no answer. And still they continue to annoy me.
One answer to "when will you finally begin to read "real" literature" that always leaves my needlers speechless is: "Never. I know that not everyone can enjoy romance, love and a hea. You have to be a strong and happy person to do so and I'm really sorry that you are not such a person."
