Everybody who knows what I do assumes that I’ve given up on print books.
—You make ebooks? Haha, you don’t need any bookcases then, do you? Must be nice.
Not that I haven’t used it as an excuse once in a while. As a rejection, it’s a little bit nicer than telling somebody that I don’t want their book because it isn’t good enough to put on my shelf—oh, and the cover’s ugly to boot.
