A revealing observation

A curious insight this morning: when I browse books at Amazon - free or bargains or best sellers - I rarely find a book I want to read, and when I do, it's something published years, decades, ago. Yet when I browse books at Gutenberg, the library of public domain classics, I am overwhelmed by how much I want to read and how little time I have to do it. The authors who speak to me have been dead for centuries.

No wonder I don't write pop lit.
