Thanks for taking the time to read, and leave some feedback. It’s not often that people respond to disagree, and even less to give critique on the writing itself! I appreciate it very much :)
Hmm, I guess a lot of the time, especially in these types of articles, I err towards being more economical with my language. I try to remove the extra, flowery language to get my point across more minimalistically, if you will. I definitely agree that (as this piece was a serenade to the book), it could have been better to put across more feeling through the word choice.
Thanks again, you’ve given me something to think about.
