Anyway, while I was eating after work, an old (elderly) friend named Richard saw me reading Xenocide and said, "Reading crappy novels again?"
I said, "Huh? You haven't read it, have you?" "No, I was just making fun." "It's written by Orson Scott Card. Heard of him?" "I have heard of him, I haven't read anything by him though."
Richard is one of the few, the elite, who like to read. I've let him borrow books of mine before. He still hasn't returned the 48 Laws of Power yet, the jerk! Probobly lost it.
I offered to let him borrow Ender's Game and he told me he'd be happy to get more books from me. He had just read "The Stand" and wanted a less complicated novel.
