The Most Interesting Thing: Readable Books

"The virtue of books is to be readable." 
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
What makes a book readable? I don't think I've ever picked up a book that wasn't readable, but some of them are very putdownable. Some are harder to read than others. What makes a book easy to read? Here are a few of my random thoughts on the matter:

Engaging story
Invisible writing
Intriguing characters
Beautiful use of language
Pacing that moves along at a fast clip

What do you think makes a book readable? Please add to my list.

Signs that my life is getting better:

*Got a part-time summer job at my favorite European Café
*Discovered a way to have hot tea delivered bedside again without getting up
*After five months of stubborn silence, my Persian prince is speaking to me again >¨<
