Reading the first chapter of a new book is like going on a speed date dinner with the author. It’s a conversation where you get to know the author’s voice, how fast they speak, and the language they use. If after a couple of pages I’m not curious or intrigued then it’s time to get the bill and move. Just like life’s too short for shit wine, life is too short for a book that doesn’t suck you in. it’s okay to close the book and find a new one. Don’t suffer through it, there are a limited number of books you can read in your life, so make them count and be picky!
