Quote of the Day

I'm a big fan of the phrase "it wasn't for me" when asked about books (and music and TV and movies and so forth) that I didn't get into.  I like the phrase because it's essentially positive: it assumes that there are books for me, but this one just wasn't one of them.  It also allows me to tell you how I felt about a book without precluding the possibility that you might like it, or making you feel stupid or put down if you did like it.

-- Austin Kleon, "It wasn't for me"
