This interview with Philip Gourevitch is mostly about interviewing, but I like this, too:

My guilty pleasure reads are things that are just fabulously written. I don‚Äôt know how to say it without it being pretentious—I‚Äôll read a chapter from Moby Dick or Adventures of Huckleberry Finn at random, where the language is just rocketing around, where there‚Äôs absolutely no urgency to read it. It‚Äôs like putting on one of your great anthem songs. It‚Äôs like cranking the stereo.
