September is Read A New Book Month.

There are people, I realize, who ask “Why would you read an old book?” but they are not of our tribe.  Rereading a great book is one of the great pleasures in life.  Reading a new book, on the other hand, is fraught with possible disappointment.  It takes a brave person to read a new book.  I read a new book last month.  It was one of those books I wasn’t sure about all the way through, but I never stopped reading.  It came THIS CLOSE to being something I’d recommend and then went off the rails at the end, possibly in part because it was setting up a sequel I probably won’t read.  Then I went back to re-reading Catherine Aird.  But inspired by Read a New Book Month, I am going to go back through the recs here and read some new books, probably starting with The Goblin Emperor.  That gets a lot of love here.

Read a new book this month, Argh People.  Then show up on Good Book Thursdays and tell us about it.
