About meI welcome all members of the reading community who enjoy discussing books and book-related things.

All I expect of any book is good writing. With good writing, any story is believable. Prose takes precedent over story.

I have no qualms about abandoning books I don't enjoy, and it usually doesn't take much for me to set a book down and never pick it up again. Time is too precious a resource to spend slogging through badly written books.
