books

hey truepenny--

Way to go on that Publishers Weekly review! If I wasn't already committed to reading this book, this definitely would have convinced me. Everyone go pre-order, Melusine, "Monette's extraordinary first fantasy novel."

Disclaimer: This isn't even one of mine. *g*

just finished printing a 659-page manuscript...

For those of you out there who read things in manuscript form, as opposed to just book form -- by which I mean standard double-spaced, one-inch margin, kinds of formats: How many pages do you figure you read an hour? Do you have different speeds for critical reading as opposed to content-reading or skimming? Feel free to comment on any other characteristics of reading said manuscripts that are pertinent to speed and/or consumption. Thanks.
