READS/RECS: I have been receiving many requests for reads and recommendations. I will happily take a look at first chapters of those requesting that, but the volume of requests has led me to limit it there. I wish I had enough time for everyone. I'm not the fastest reader. Please don't request recommendations. I prefer to pick those I recommend organically as I'm sure you all do.
