Reading at 40+

Haven't been able to read fiction lately. Maybe Lileks knows why:
Now I’m reading again, and like many in their 40s, it’s non-fiction. The real world is more interesting than the manufactured ones, with all its tricks and gimmicks. By now I’d rather read a biography of the man who typeset “Les Miserables” than read the book again.

Seems to me that non-fiction is just fiction told by the person who lived it or studied it. I do see your point though...just not there yet at 47.

Great Blog- Enjoy the kids antics!
