In which I link to an article which suggests doing something I’m almost certainly not going to do.
Found via Neil Gaiman. Probably skip the comments, I’d suggest.
Although I don’t think it’s a bad idea and I am trying to diversify my reading somewhat (right now - Wolf Hall - as rejected by our book club :)). I did read Octavia Butler’s Kindred recently, which surprised me, because I didn’t bother looking up what it was about, went straight by the recommendation here (by @milliefink?), and expected SF, which it wasn’t. But it was worth reading, and I will try more of her stuff.
