As a book buying consumer, I find genres annoying.

When I worked in a bookshop, I hated seeing books shelved or stacked in the wrong section/genre/category. And I didn't even work on the shop floor! (And even as a shopper I have been known to tidy the occasional shelf in a bookshop when I'm browsing...)
I do that, but that's from years of working in a bookstore. I like things to be classified, in lots of things. I have issues though.

I don't want to spoil anything for you, but keep those thoughts in mind as you read Refuge.

Thank you very much Richard

Richard Herley I've added your book on Shelfari (so that I can add it to my shelf as I read it). Just to let you know.

A "me too" on the thanks. Now I'm able to switch off reading this book between the Sony Reader and a PDA in poor/no lighting. At 32% done (ahh, Plucker is good), I'm really liking this book, just up my alley. Sorta stunned that a donationware book would be this much more riveting than Grisham (and I'm not talking duds like "The Appeal").
