Always_lurking, I hope when you make that on-line purchase you do it via AALBC.com: http://aalbc.com/authors/tracyprice-thompson.htm (or from any AALBC.com/Thumpercorner.com page including this one)

In many ways reading is a luxury. Especially when consuming one of Morrison's books http://aalbc.com/authors/toni.htm

You need large blocks of time, when you are relatively alert and coherent. When my kids were younger and I worked a full time job in addition to AALBC.com, reading a novel was definitely a luxury, reserved for air travel and vacation.

When I do have the time and energy; I donít suffer from readers block. There are simply too many interesting books available to read. Over the last few years Iíve abandoned many books before completion. Years ago I hated dropping a book before completion but now I have no problem doing this Ė life is too short to waste time on a book that is going nowhere when there are so many options. So I agree with Thumper on that point.
