Just a point of view.
Every book in every library on this planet has something wrong with it. It could be something tiny. Maybe a minor character isn’t well drawn. Maybe a description goes on too long. Maybe the dialogue is stiff in one spot. There’s something wrong with every single one.
No matter how hard we writers try, we will never achieve perfection.
Perfection doesn’t mater No two readers would agree on whether our book was perfect anyway. Besides, readers care less about perfection and more about connection, getting caught up in a story, caring about the characters.

Public Service Announcement from @perilouspaper #bookfort
When you loan someone a book and it takes forever for them to read it.
When they leave greasy fingerprints on the pages
When some of the pages are torn or the book is all crinkled
When they dog-ear the pages
