[bksvol-discuss] Re: adult rateing and page numbers

Oh, yes. When I validate a book I always make my own
decision. It isn't just children under 18. There are a
lot of adults that are offended by and don't want to
read books that have explicit sex, even if tastefully
written, or that have obscenities or profanity. If I
don't rate them adult, a I explain in the long
synopsis that the book contains those words, so the
reader or parents can make an informed choice.
Violence, too.
