Good picks (and not just for the guys)😉
As I read purely for pleasure light reading is about the only kind I know (occasionally re-read the classics but Bronte and Dickens are fairly light reading too, in my opinion).
Never said hello to Proust but gladly said goodbye to Tolstoy, reading Anna Karenina gave me a migraine, all those bloody characters, at least I finished it, unlike War and Peace (has anyone ever finished that?)
The only thing that stayed with me from Anna Karenina was this quote (so I can't dismiss Leo completely!):
“I think... if it is true that there are as many minds as there are heads, then there are as many kinds of love as there are hearts.” 🥰
