I'm sure this comes as a suprise to most of you, but i love books! It's not just the stories i love, but the physical books. I do not care one bit for Nooks or any other hand held readers; before we know it, books will be a thing of the past and everything will be electronic, i suppose it is a form of nostalgia. Oh well, that's one of my many opinions on the subject.
I have to admit, my favorite author is Nicholas Sparks. We have a love-hate relationship. I love him for being a fantastic and romantic writer, BUT I HATE HIM for killing at least one person in every book *sigh* I mean, I get the face that that a "good" book has love and loss in it, but seriously...I can predict who, when and why a character will die before I even read the book. Yet, I continue to go back time and time again to buy his latest book...explain that one to me haha.
A never-ending question that will always plauge me is this, "Why do people like to make fun of people who read?" And, yes, I am asking this for personal reasons. I get made fun of, but I'm not bitter about it, I'm just curious as to why. Readers are usually quiet and don't bother other people. What reason is there? Oh, wait, "Leaders are Readers" or "Readers are Leaders" ( however that saying goes) could that be one of the reasons that upset people? Or maybe it's the fact that readers have a much larger vocabulary and tend to be a tad bit brighter thatn the average person. Therein may lie the problem....Should that be the case? I hope not...it's lame.
If you are reading this...do you like to read? If so, what is your favorite book? Or author?
Later Loves <3
