Life's too short to read all the good books so don't waste time reading rubbish ...

Well, that's the theory.  I have been reading a number of books lately (through lists on Goodreads) and darn it, I want those hours back!  So many books are just not worthy of the time it takes to read one.  That's why I return over and over to the writers I KNOW can write.  Yet this is doing a disservice to the new, contemporary writers out there who have a style as well as a story, who take the care to write something that lingers.   The late Barrie Unsworth is such a writer.  For me, the tales that have their roots in some kind of reality, an accurate portrayal of time and place, far surpass those truly awful apocalyptic/zombie/Dystopian ramblings that litter Amazon/Kindle today.

My two cents' ......
