Safari Friday searching the web for writers and readers — How to judge a book READ PAGE 99
Open the book to page ninety nine, and the quality of the whole will be revealed to you. `

This is a website based on the premise that the first page of a novel does not reveal all. Polished and honed by the author, it may not give a true impression of what lies within. Instead dive in and read page 99. If you like that then there is a very good chance you will like the rest of the book.
On this website you can read anonymous pages from the famous and the unpublished, from the classic to the so-fresh-first-draft it feels as though the ink will come off on the screen. It’s quite addictive.
AND you get to make comments.
AND you can post your own stuff too. What’s not to like….
Safari = Swahili for long journey.
I am on the look out for anything accessible from a keyboard that educates, entertains, intrigues, raises a smile. Anything that helps a reader get through the day or a writer the next draft. Let me know if you have a website that you’d like featured or discover something that really should be shared.
