The mystery of the missing mountain

I posted a comment about Seicho Mastumoto in February, sparked in part by my viewing of the movie Zero Focus (Zero no shoten), based on one of his novels. Now comes the surprising news that the cliff that was a dramatic focus of the highly dramatic movie is no more. Sic transit gloria monti.

The 50 page rule is for sweet young things - once you are past 50 you take your age from 100 and that is the number of pages you should judge a book in. By the time you are 99 then the author only gets one page to grab your attention :)

A librarian called Nancy Pearl came up with this little gem :)

In that case, I must be wise or impatient beyond my years! A book usually grabs me or repels me well before 50 pages. By Nancy Pearl's standard, I'm well into my nineties.
