    I have no interest in reading self-published books of any genre.

    I'm pretty fussy what I read too; life's too short. Heck, I haven't much patience with most traditionally published novels these days.

    Please, I couldn't get past the first chapter of the novel I recently tried to read. It certainly is the case that being traditionally published is no guarantee of quality. Neither is success.

    Yeah, same here, but at least they're real books.

    As one who hoofs a couple of miles to the library -- twice a week, usually -- I need to think twice about checking out a book I'll need to lug back home with me. Some of those things can be mighty heavy devils. Will I read the book(s) all the way through --we're allowed three weeks with possible renewal -- or will I just have to trek it all the way back again next time I head to the library? It'd better be worth the bother, is what I'm saying.

    Yeah, I just find it hard to relate to most novels these days. I'm more into nonfiction.

    Kits, you need an e-reader of some sort. Save lugging those tomes to and fro. (Especially handy during the snow-ice-and-slush season.)

    Yeah, I figured somebody would suggest that (e-reader). But how do you know what's even "out there" until you see them displayed on the "New Books" shelves? The eyes like to feast on them, too, know what I mean? They enjoy the visuals. Also, I like to visit with the people I see at the library itself -- and points along the way.

    I could get rides if I so wanted. But I come from hearty Wisconsin stock, so I can deal with the elements pretty well. Plus, I've lots of books here at home, if I ever want to just read them again.

    Worse comes to worse, I'll just hang out on the computer...like now.
