I've tried any number of times to be a good enough person to review the books I read. Since I read about 100 a year, this is a pretty sizable task, and since I hate sizable tasks that don't have to do with writing my own books, I've decided the time has come to simplify the scope of what I plan on doing. No long reviews will be henceforth. No flowery descriptions to try to get you to buy something. SIMPLE. That's the word.
So...my simple scale:
BUY IT NOW!!!
Wait for Paperback
Borrow it from a Rich Friend
Stay Far Far Away
I might also add a single sentence as comment...ooooooooh.
First up = The Alcatraz Series by Brandon Sanderson. First book available HERE.
Ranking = Borrow it from a Rich Friend
