I just started When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. Already, I love the references to A Wrinkle in Time, one of my all-time favorite books, but the quality of the actual book suuuuucks. I understand low budgets, first books, etc., but I hate that there is no title or chapter information at the top. I do not like the font type for the chapter headings. The font size is large, but I’m assuming that is because it is YA fiction. I have found that typically YA fiction uses larger font type, which is ironic as it is the elder generations that need larger font. Ah, well, back to reading.
Do you have any pet peeves when you are reading? Is there anything that physically distracts you from the task at hand? I recently read The Terror by Dan Simmons, and the paper quality was excellent. These are things I notice. Call me a connoisseur. Call me, ahem, other names. Or just call me plain picky.
