Patron: What reading level is this book?
Martin: It’s not a video game. The whole concept is nonsensical.

Patron: My teacher says I’m supposed to read books that aren’t too hard or too easy for me.
Martin: Just open it and read a few pages. You’ll know if it’s the book for you.

Patron: No, I won’t. If it’s too difficult it will crush my self-esteem. If it’s too easy it’ll be worse than junk food.
Martin: Trust me, if you want to read it, it’s fine for you no matter what.

Patron: What if I get in trouble?
Martin: What if you’d love that book but you never find out?
