Oh, yes, loads. It's often genres rather than particular authors- "no, I
don't feel like history this evening, I want something daft". Or if it's
something imposing I almost have to nerve myself up for it. Films, too- I
haven't seen The Opposite of Sex- I'm sure it's good and I'll enjoy it but
every time my boyfriend suggests it I just want to watch a Jackie Chan film,
or if I suggest it he feels like Shakespeare.
