Booking Through Thursday: New or old?
Question June 17, 2010: Do you prefer reading current books? Or older ones? Or outright old ones? (As in, yes, there’s a difference between a book from 10 years ago and, say, Charles Dickens or Plato.)
My answer: New ones I guess. I would have to say that most of the books that I read have been published within the last 20 years. I think the oldest books I've ever read are probably Isaac Asimov's Foundation stories-which I just learned were first published in the 1940s. I do like books that are set in the present day and deal with current issues-on a FICTIONAL basis-but I also love books set in the past-historical fiction included.
I don't have an aversion to older books-so if you have any suggestions-as always-let me know!!!
