Books to curl up with: a librarian's musings

Good for you reading

As a librarian you constantly see lists of classic novels that you ought to have read. I have just tried to start a Tolstoy novel for the third time. The emphasis in that sentence is on the tried. I know I should read some of these classic novels. I know many people love these novels. However I sometimes feel that they are like taking cod liver oil. They are good from me, but they don't taste good.
