Hey, my friend Thomas was over at my house.
I have a lot of books and Thomas started asking me about a few. We had read some of the same books. He borrowed one, I offered a few more, but he said one at a time was good.
We talked about some authors he was curious about and he shared a few with me I hadn’t heard of. He reads mostly non-fiction, I read mostly fiction.
It was awesome to talk with Thomas.
Because he has nothing to do with writing. Or small presses. Or big presses. Or editing.
He’s a reader and a curious guy.
I would rather talk with Thomas about books than with anyone else at an event like this.
People like Thomas are the ones keeping your writing alive.
