Open Mic Friday! you talk: what makes a book good?

Happy first Friday of December, you fantastic unique individuals, and welcome to the Open Mic! Guest posts are looking scarce for the rest of the year, so we should be able to get some good discussions in before 2012 comes round. 😉 If you’re new or haven’t visited in a while, on weeks when we don’t have a guest artist, I pose a question and we chat in the comments. Ready?

Today I want to talk about books, because one of Anna’s posts over at Girl in the Hat got me thinking. That was a writerly post and a writerly conversation, but I want to know even if you’ve never written a word: What makes a book good for you? It’s one of those basic questions we don’t ask ourselves often enough. What does it for you, as a reader?

See you in the comments!
