about me

I am a dilettante. I would not dream of doing anything as energetic as writing a book. Quite happy to admire others however.

My backing policy: I back on whim, with the occasional exception. If there are books on my shelf close to the top in the rankings, it is because I think they are especially good books.

Have I backed your book? Maybe I liked your avatar or a comment you made or the pitch you wrote. Maybe I read a little bit and maybe I didn't. But if I do back your book, you can be confident that I will leave it up for more than 24 hours. That's all it takes to give you some value from it.

Spam me? Not worth bothering. I ignore everything that bores me.
