Reading is stimulation. It is fodder for thought and communication. To constantly be reading something new is to be connected to a much larger conversation. To that end, Novel Thoughts are intended to inspire that conversation. Here you will find thoughts related to a new book each week. Love them, hate them, disregard them. Feel free to comment on them. Read the books if the notion appeals to you. If they elicit a response, the purpose of the series has been served.
