We gals at Flirty and Dirty would just like to say something about why we read, why we should read and what a book does for the mind, body and soul.I’m sure like most of you, we read because we love to – unless it’s a textbook and we are studying for exams. Then it’s a must do… We love to see how others take perspective on something, be it friendship, love, tragedy, betrayal, sex or life in general. We believe everyone should read. If not to remove yourself from the daily grind, even if just for a few moments, then to open your heart, mind and soul to the ‘other’ that is out there. Other may be something spiritual, something exhilarating, passionate, and different or something that you just can’t get from real life. Read to learn, to enjoy, to speculate, to ponder, to dream and to feel that AHA moment. Read because you can. A book can take you on an amazing journey. Each time you reread a book will take you on an entirely different journey from the last. Every new book read takes you on yet another amazing path. Even when a book is not that appealing to you or you just couldn’t feel it, that story has evoked an emotion in you. It has made you think of something. If ten people read the same book, there will undoubtedly be ten different responses to that book.
We ask that when you post a review or comment on the blog or FB, that you respect everyone’s journey. So that means no spoilers and no bashing. We all have the right to read and the right to escape through stories.
Happy reading and get flirty and dirty! Cuz books are HOT!
