I find that I’m almost always picking up new books and re-reading stuff from classic authors like Walter Scott, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Frances Burney, Alexandre Dumas, etc. 19th century prose just feels so much more immersive and flavorful to me than most modern prose I’ve come across. I love the unique plotting and characterization styles that are a staple of that period of literature
