What is a ‘good’ book? For me, it’s rarely a best seller. It’s a book which makes me think and spot something new every time I read it or one I’m not likely to go back to read again because of the emotions which remain with me. Here’s what other think:
'I rather agree with C. S. Lewis that a book that isn't worth reading when you're sixty isn't worth reading when you're six.'

A good story is a good story. If what I'm writing reaches you, then it reaches you no matter what title is stuck on it.
