‘Compulsively readable’

Is it a good idea to buy an otherwise possibly iffy-sounding thriller (mysterious medieval manuscripts and deadly secrets…) just because there’s a positive blurb on the front by an author you really like? Hmm.

Well, I wanted to make sure I have something for the weekend if my new Reginald Hill doesn’t arrive in time. And I still love the fact that at last I am earning a salary that allows me to just pick up new paperbacks on the off chance that I might like them, and it won’t matter if they turn out to be real donkeys.

    It’s really something quite new for me. It’s taken me nearly two years to get the hang of it. But what if I have to get out of the hang of it again in future?…
