I've always read for entertainment, for escapism. I like non-fiction material because I like learning things, but when it comes to fiction, I read to delve into another world. When it comes to fiction, the more removed from real life, the better.
But for some reason, I've just lost all interest in "serious" books and movies and TV.
Soprano's, Breaking Bad, that kind of thing. Movies like Gone Girl or The Master or 12 Years a Slave. Just not interested.
The last few "literary" novels I read bored the hell out of me.
Sure, I know they are great and I'm sure I would enjoy them, but I just don't want to go there.
