I don't think my documents are very interesting. For one thing, many of my readers are not native speakers of English (and I don't want them to spend twenty minutes looking up "passionately" and then trying to understand how they should "passionately" press ENTER and why that's important!). For another thing, I think the typical use model for most of my material is to search for a term, parachute into a page or topic, grab some info and get out ... it's hard to build up any momentum with the prose in that case.

That said, I think it would be fun to try to make my stuff interesting despite these limitations. I'm going to take this as a challenge. ;->
