How do you read?
OK this is a weird topic, but I was having this conversation with my wife the other night. I am a VERY story oriented reader. If the story is intriguing to me I like the book period. I had the hardest time with English Lit teachers because I'd read something and then they'd start with the "what do think the author was trying to say with all the mentions of the color red?" Me: That a lot of things were red, I don't understand the question. "What do you think the boys choice to collect bugs sybolized?" Me: He thought bugs were cool. Again what? I read very literally. Yeah OK there can be a moralistic theme, but that's about as deep as I go. Secodly if an author spends 4 or five sentences to tell me about the vibrant colors of the flowers, the soft green hue of the grass, and birds chotling softly in the ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. You get my point. Anyone else a literal reader?

PS I do like character development.
