The truth of our love..

The truth is that we hate reading Shakespeare - it's long and confusing and more complex than our little attention spans can cope with. But we are all young and in love, as all youth tend to be - if only in love with love - and so we read Shakespeare and fantasize that perhaps, someone, somewhere cannot live without their other half.

The truth is that Austen can be incredibly tedious, Fitzgerald incredibly circular, Meyer incredibly clich├ęd -
but we are all young and in love and so we will read, because at least in books, love is everything we hoped for.
