I’m the kind of guy who buys books for my parents and friends who need them.
And while I do love reading them, the sheer amount of time it takes to make sure they’re actually a good read for them is frustrating.
I have to check them for typos and other typos that would cause them to read the book in the first place, and I can’t seem to find a way to turn off the subtitles so I can see the author’s name and book title at the same time.
And the more time I spend reading, the more I realize that the book signing process is an extremely time-consuming and tedious endeavor.
