    which is appropriate here?

    Hello Again!

    This is the example: This is so interesting even my dull brother might enjoy it. (in present tense, I take it only 'might' would be appropriate here? Or, is 'would' also okay?)

    "Would" is OK too, but it suggests more certainty than "might".
