Lessons from the unread

“Just for fun” is the caveat with this index. But it made me think of the books I’ve read — and not read — recently. I just didn’t have time to finish a few I was reading for book clubs. Others didn’t compel me to turn pages. (And I read all of A Brief History of Time.)
Three rules I think we can draw from this unscientific study are:
1. Write every page as if it were the first page.
2. Good stories get read.
3. Genre isn’t everything.
