just the words

I've been following I Wrote This For You since the early 2000's, when it was just a blog. When the first book came out, I was sad to see some of the pieces I'd loved so much (from the blog) not in it. I appreciate this book because it's a collection of everything. Some of mu favorites that had been bookmarked online are in the first few pages. That being said, I am not a fan of the layout only because I feel like there is too much on each page. Maybe this was the only way to fit everything in? This is a personal distraction. What I enjoyed about the first book was the space. Another qualm I have with this is the repetition. I enjoy it to a certain extent, but it feels like a lot of pieces could have been grouped together because of such similarity in the themes and subject matter. This is also a personal distraction.
I will always be a fan of Iain Thomas, and I wrote this for you. The writing is simple and beautiful. All in all, this is a wonderful collection.
