You know I have NEVER read a thriller. I read Helter Skelter but that was non-fiction. Nope, I never have. Wow! I just learned something about myself.

Your last comment about the value of a book vs. cost of investment for fast readers echoes what I often feel when people who don't read quickly comment on my choices or even the quantity of my reading, as if I cloistered myself from the world to read. For me, it's not such a big deal, and yes, it's worth comparing to some of the other things people do with that same time, which is hardly saving the world's children or creating great art or whatever. Oops, do I sound defensive? ;-)
