      About the only quote in the post that is not 100% accurate for me is, “If a book is well written, I always find it too short.” There are some thriller books that are so suspenseful and gripping that I race through them to find out how it ends. In some ways, I can’t get through the book fast enough. It’s like a long sprint. I cross the finish line gasping for air and grateful the race is over, yet thrilled to have run it.
