Poll Wednesday: On Being “Well Read”

Today’s poll is in response to a concept brought up in a facebook fan page conversation about “Well Read.”  In order to be someone who is considered well read, we generally agreed that one had to read a diverse collection of high-quality books (whatever that means can be dissected, but for now just assume that it is true).

The question underneath this is: does someone have to read fiction as well as non-fiction to be well read?  Can someone be well-read and just read fiction?  Can they be well-read and only read non-fiction?
