I did English Literature at A-Level and University.
This has absolutely no impact on what books I read. I generally don't like all the books perceived to be "classics". Though I do like Shakespeare. Can't stand Jane Austen. It's a wonder I made it through the course to be honest.
I read what entertains me. My favourite authors are Dean Koontz, John Grisham and Chuck Palahniuk.
And I'm slowly working my way through the Black Library's Horus Heresy series.
Big fan of Roald Dahl when I was growing up and the Narnia series too. And who could forget Roger Red Hat?
I'm sure I'll have a few blog posts in the future recommending my favourite reads, so watch out for that.
