Lit tastes?


Does anyone have any opinions on what the characters would be reading? I ask as a recovering lit major. emoticon

Rumsfield would be a voracious reader of military nonfiction and bios, natch, but I like to think he harbors a secret love of romance novels (he swipes Bonnie's and she pretends she doesn't know).

Carol seems well-read. I feel like she keeps up to date on contemporary literature and has read a lot of classics. I can see her digging Virginia Woolf.

Bonnie probably likes romance novels, Nicholas Sparks, that kind of thing...but maybe a little Romantic-era poetry thrown in.

Somewhere, buried in the Klopeks dusty bookcase, would be a copy of necronomicon ex-mortis...

Re: Lit tastes?


I can see Art sitting on his porch reading The Amityville Horror. With some snacks, of course.

Rumsfield MUST have read some Tom Clancy, don't you think?

Ricky's only just started reading for pleasure, and is surely hooked on Stephen King (he made up the foaming squirrel after reading Cujo).

Ray...he's tough...I don't know what he would read...

I've never seen that.

Yes to all! I think Art would probably have a bunch of trashy "true story" books and detective pulp.

Ricky probably also has a stack of comic books a mile high. Maybe he's started testing the waters of graphic novels...maybe starting off with Alan Moore's Killing Joke and Watchmen.

Hmmm, Ray...maybe contemporary fiction? Nothing too highbrow, but good and compulsively readable: Michael Crichton, whomever the 80s equivalent of Gillian Flynn was, etc.

Ray could also read this one here ;-)

And Art must be reading something like this:

Here's Bonnie's:

And here's Mark's:
