  1. Dear sir,

    I would love to respond, but I don’t know what you see as the difference between literature and literary fiction. Is it a matter of time? Is literary fiction more contemporary and therefore not yet proven literature? Or do you have some other distinction in mind.

    Regardless, I think you know my answer, so perhaps I’ve accomplished the purpose of the poll/

    shalom,

    Steven

  2. I’m unable to pick between literature and literary fiction. In my head ‘literary fiction’ is more contemporary and ‘literature’ is older books. I think of your blog as being a mix of the two and therefore can’t pick one over the other. So please consider mine a half vote for each of those categories.

  3. Okay, I voted, because I figure you have a reason for asking; but one of the things that I especially like about your little corner of the virtual world is the sense that you’re reading across all four of these categories. You’re including Setterfield, Atwood, Dickens AND Waters (even in just the past few days): it’s the combo that particularly piques my interest.
