"I am also sick of other online blatherers who describe themselves as "aspiring writers." Not to get too Yoda-like, but either write or don't. There is no aspire.

Given that nothing was going to beat The Lord of the Rings, and that nothing deserved to beat Pride and Prejudice, it's the best result I could imagine. I'm also deeply grateful to the series for helping my books sell in such pleasant quantities. It wouldn't have happened without The Big Read, and I'm very happy about it.
