A Bookish Choice

A literary-minded witch gives you a choice: with a flick of the wand, you can become either an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades, or a popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions. Which do you choose?

A popular paperback author. Since I have guaranteed that my books will give pleasure to millions, I’ll try to write good quality literature, so my works will survive the pass of the time and maybe will be admired and studied by many for decades. This way I’ll have the benefits of a successful author (I’ll be rich and famous and I’ll be able to write about whatever I want) and I’ll be remembered as a good and successful writer.

A Bookish Choice.



Journalist. In my fifties. I've worked for 26 years in a newspaper in Spain. I worked for two years as a stringer and correspondent in the US, and went as a special envoy to other places like the Balkans. Sea lover. Avid reader. Classic Music enthusiast.
