Anyway there's a challenge for each of the first 11 days in April. Today's challenge:
Be a fool for books: Why I like books more than people.
So my responses were that romance books always have a happy ending. The heroine you identify with always gets to marry the hot, sexy man and endless hours of pleasuring each other ensues. How many people do you know who have this kind of experience?
Also, in the kinds of romance books I like to read and write, good things don't happen to bad people, and bad things don't happen to good people.
That randomness of life sometimes gets me really down.
And I need to add that in the sci-fi books that I love to read intelligent ideas and themes abound. Good sci-fi looks at the way things are now and extrapolates to what might be. Most come up with dystopic views of the future. In my only paranormal books, about the Mayan Vampire Aliens, I imagine a utopic view, with humans choosing to pursue education and making choices that benefit the human race, not just their own bank accounts. What a concept, huh? Don't meet many people like that, do you?
How about you? Are you a fool for books?
