Booking Through Thursday


How about a chance to play editor-in-chief? Fill in the blanks:

__________ would have been a much better book if ______________________.

This has one easy answer from me. When I read this book for the first time (well, really the only time) in high school, I was looking forward to it. And you have to understand. I love long books. If a book is a good one, I consider great length to be an asset. More time for me to love it! But this book? Nope.

So here's my (scandalous) answer:

Don Quixote would have been a better book if Cervantes' editor had cut it in half.

So there.
