Resist the Urge to Explain

I assume I’m going to like every book I read; why else would I have bothered with it in the first place? I can’t keep up with all the things I want to read as it is; why waste time on unnecessary risks?

Ten minutes later, on camera, the helmet-haired blonde hostess’s first question was to Parker: “Where do you get your…
