Choosing a book to read

by Jim Webster
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 15/03/2016

The books cascade past. Like bats in the dark, squeaking their brief electronic lives away, unseen and little lamented.

I reach out into the stream, holding a cupped hand and look at what I’ve caught. Bland and self defeating erotica, insipid romances, tedious tales of forbidden vampire love, I let them all slip between my fingers. But look, a little gem, a well written story to get my teeth into. I put it to one side, but in gathering that, how many have poured past me? Yet I know I will never live long enough to read those I save.
