His awkwardness had fallen away as he warmed up to his own argument, and he summed up with the satisfied smile of a debate-society champ. It was impossible to tell how sincere he’d been about any of this.

This week’s question is: Would you stop reading a book if an element of the plot strongly clashed with your personal beliefs, or would you continue reading until you finished the book? I’d keep reading because I think it’s important to know all sides of things. The exception would be if I felt the author was trying to convince me to change my mind to their way of thinking, especially my religious beliefs.

There once was a girl named Phoebe Snow. She wore only white and helt tight to a violet corsage, an emblem of modesty. She was not retiring, though, and her life spun out as a series of journeys through mountain tunnels carved from poetry. I never saw her do anything besides boarding, riding, or disembarking a train, immaculate always, captivating conductors, enchanting other passengers.
