At what point can you claim to be 'well read'?
I hear people say this a lot (I never liked the phrase) & I’ve wondered what they’ve read. Is it a matter of quantity or quality? Can someone who reads every issue of People magazine & Stephenie Meyer claim to be well read? Must you read a little of everything – poetry, fiction, non-fiction, foreign text, etc..? What do you feel is the requirement to be able to call yourself, well read?
