literary stuff as in what makes a book a classic, what doesn't, the "value" of some authors over others. I really don't understand a lot of it - I love books, I love to read -and if it's entertaining, I'm happy (and sometimes I have a hard time with the "classics" - I get bored or hate characters, etc)

I have friends who won't read certain authors and will quote passages saying "I can't believe how poorly written this is!" - it has to be really horrible for me to comment like that (I actually can't think of an example)
