Hi, I'm also new to the list, although I've been belatedly reading digests
for a while.
I think another sign of literature abuse is when you find yourself talking
and thinking in the style of a book you've been reading - even if it's old
English or includes adjectives unique to the novel. It causes strange
looks...maybe not as many as "she said" though!
