Cover To Cover

Most authors are gratified to know
If their works are viewed as more than so-so
When cover to cover they're avidly read
Whether on printed page or digitally fed

Some writers who profess to write for themselves
Prefer their work not collect dust on book-shelves
Authors can't please all with all they write
But are happy to give readers a bit of delight

Not daunted if critiqued for what they've written
Just as long as their readers are literally smitten

And the reader , should not always judge a book by it's cover. Then read between the lines.

Writers can only please there readers some of the time . Though they just not all the time.
You please this reader all the time , Stan.
