Page 99

I like this. English author Ford Madox Ford once said about judging a book: "Open the book to page 99 and read, and the quality of the whole will be revealed to you." We are usually tied into beginnings. Does a book grab us from the outset? Or should we be looking elsewhere? This piece in the Guardian is a fun meditation on the whole business.
