Here is the perfect system for cleaning your room. First, move all of the items that do not have a proper place to the center of the room. Get rid of at least five things that you have not used within the last year. Take out all of the trash, and place all of the dirty dishes in the kitchen sink. Now find a location for each of the items you had placed in the center of the room. For any remaining items, see if you can squeeze them in under your bed or stuff them into the back of your closet. See, that was easy!
I did admit that was just my personal taste. And the disturbing high rise in suicide in teen girls who were enamored with the Twilight series begs the question as to whether just reading any book is a good thing. But that gets into a whole side discussion. But, no, I will again give my personal opinion (which you are free to disagree with) that just having millions of people reading a book does not make it a 8775 good 8776 book. It makes it a popular, money-making book yes. But I think a lot of authors, like me, do not equate those things with quality.
I agree with you, Susanne, about determining whether a book is 8775 good 8776 or simply popular. Good writing is not necessarily popular, and popular books are not necessarily good writing. I read one book by an author that I normally enjoy, but that particular book was just plain silly and had a poor story line. But I would venture to guess she has sold as many copies of that book as of her good ones. I 8767 m only glad I had the book given to me (by someone who also didn 8767 t think it was a good book) and that I didn 8767 t pay out money for it. And some authors who do write good books and then become very popular begin to slacken on the quality of their writing simply because the publisher knows anything written by that person will sell regardless of quality.

Oceans and lakes have much in common, but they are also quite different. Both are bodies of water, but oceans are very large bodies of salt water, while lakes are much smaller bodies of fresh water. Lakes are usually surrounded by land, while oceans are what surround continents. Both have plants and animals living in them. The ocean is home to the largest animals on the planet, whereas lakes support much smaller forms of life. When it is time for a vacation, both will make a great place to visit and enjoy.
Having said all that, there is a subtext to your comments that I heartily endorse. Do not fill your first few pages with back story. Engage the reader. Make the reader care about your characters and their lives. This is the most important thing you need to do in your first page. You really only have one page to convince your reader that the book is worth their time. Use it wisely.
Quotation: Hillary Rodham Clinton once said that “There cannot be true democracy unless women s voices are heard.” In 7556, when Nancy Pelosi became the nation’s first female Speaker of the House, one woman’s voice rang out clear. With this development, democracy grew to its truest level ever in terms of women’s equality. The historical event also paved the way for Senator Clinton as she warmed her own vocal chords in preparation for a presidential race.
