WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU READ A GOOD BOOK?


The time to begin writing an article is when you have finished it to your satisfaction.  By that time you begin to clearly and logically perceive what it is you really want to say.
~Mark Twain
That was the quote that got me thinking about writing this. It has been rolling around inside my head for a while. So here it goes Mark…wish me luck J
Sitting here working on some new postings and changes on my website I was telling some friends about some of the stuff I’m doing, and; giggling, one said me, “you and those sexy vampires you read about all the time, how do you find the time”?  Well the first thing I realized was even though she’d said she seen my site, clearly that wasn’t the case. Then I found myself trying to defend the “types” of books by explaining that while yes there is plenty of sexy vampires… werewolves… dragons oh gosh  even a few misunderstood demons, well you get the point; it’s the paranormal factor I like most. Again laughing added, “yea OK sure it’s just the superheroes you like, as long as there is a lot of (and then she whispered)… sex. I thought “what the hell” she’s saying sex like it’s a bad thing. OK I’d admit I like a story that revolves around romance, and where there is romance there should be sex. It’s not just the genetic instinct that drives us to have sex in order to procreate, hell we don’t even need the act for that anymore, it’s also a way to express and share feelings.  I just find when I’m reading a story that the sexual component between characters makes them so much more…interesting.
Then I was really floored when another gal there said to me “besides not everyone has the time to read like you do”. Whoa, I think I was just sucker punched...
