Do you ever feel like you have emerged better for reading a book?

There are times when I have felt like I had the potential to be better after reading a book. Very rarely does it actually come into fruition. One example is Karen Armstrong’s, Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life. I really liked that book for a while. I have a copy of it somewhere. I may have lent it out to my cousin (I now feel like I want it back). The book had some good insights but I failed to put them in practice.

Have you ever thought of writing a respectful, but angry letter to an author to ask them WHY they killed off one of your favorite characters in a novel?

My initial reaction was no but when I thought about it, there has only been one favourite of mine character who was killed off. The Last Dragon Chronicles by Chris D’Lacey was one of my favourite book series while I was growing up.

Without going into too much spoiler terrority, there was one character I liked a lot who the author killed off. I was really shocked by the death. It seemed senseless to me at the time. I didn’t get why it happened. So I was pretty angry at the author. Writing a letter to him didn’t cross my mind but I was pretty peeved for a while.

How do you organize your books for review? Does it work for you or have you had to change it?

I just write reviews of books as I read them. No organization needed. Everything goes into one category: “Book” and then it gets the tag “review.” I very rarely review books in the first place so it’s not something that I pay much attention to.
