Good v. Great

Here's the difference between a good book and a great book. A good book you read to finish and because it's not bad. It's good to read before bed and for lack of something better.

Here Be Monsters was a good book. Cute drawings, interesting concept and ideas. Not bad.

A great book is one that goes everywhere with you because you never know when you have a few minutes extra to read (bathroom, drive thru line, soccer practice, etc...). You almost can't read it before bed because you might not be able to put it down and then you won't get enough sleep.

Nerve Damage was a great book. Peter Abrahams is just a good writer. It took me a week to read Here Be Monsters and like two days to finish Nerve Damage.
