A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #50

“I finish every single novel I start. If I happen upon the first line of 1,000-page novel, I of course don’t feel compelled to read to the end. But as a matter of personal policy, when I decide I’m going to read a novel, I read the whole thing.”

– the opening paragraph from “Finish That Book!” by Juliet Lapidos, published in The Atlantic online in November 2014.
