If David Mitchell Says It’s Okay…

If a book is so manky a dog that you’re going to regret reading it, you’ve only got yourself to blame if you do. I’m 42, I read maybe 25 books a year, with luck I’ll live another 40 years, which adds up to only 1000 books. I probably own more than a thousand unread books now. If, after 50 pages, a book isn’t doing anything for me, it’s time to say goodbye.
