OMG, maybe it was Bert!

I'll spend a few days reading some bad Victorian novels (I don't seem to read any other kind, somehow...)

Do you ever find this disheartening? I admit, one reason I shifted research directions was to get out of having to read so much bad writing, even though professionally I would probably have been better off staying in my niche stocked with second-rate stuff.

Taken individually, the novels are pretty bad, but I'm interested in the "conversation" going on among the novels. So the payoff comes from thinking about what emerges from a group of texts as a whole, which (from a personal POV) makes the enterprise not disheartening at all.
