All comments will be moderated before approval. It’s easier to keep the conversations on point that way.
Comments need to stick to the subjects presented in the post through the lens of the books reviewed. Occasional rabbit trails are fun and interesting, but this isn’t an “issues” blog.
The goal here is to inspire readers to pick up a book and be able to discuss them in an age in which technology has largely hindered our ability to engage in focused, sustained reading in lieu of parroting results of Google searches and Wikipedia as evidence of our “profound” wisdom.
That reminds me: Comments along the lines of “If you liked that book Elspeth, you’ll really like this one!” are always, always welcome.
