Whispers of Truth

It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts. ~K.T. Jong

Types of readers

 The Devourer:  Each book is a snack for this kind of reader--but it doesn't mean that s/he won't enjoy each book just as much.

The Lover:  Books read by this kind of reader are read in hidden, stolen moments at the most unexpected times.

The Slow Dancer:  Books are a treat that this kind of reader savors. Slow and steady wins this reader's race, as his/her eyes take in and taste each and every word.

The Addict:  Books are a conquest to this kind of reader. S/he will buy more books than s/he can read, but s/he will ALWAYS have something to read.

The Classic:  Books of the past are a gift to this reader. Prose in the style of early contemporary authors, or stories written long ago, are favorites for this reader.

The Die-Hard:  Genres are a way of life for this reader. S/he finds a niche and sticks to it--veering from what s/he knows for short bursts of time.

The Advocate:  This reader is a lover of books. S/he is not just a reader, but an advocate of reading--hoping that the future will contain more readers.

What kind of reader are you? Add on if you wish!

Caresses, expressions of one sort or another, are necessary to the life of the affections, as leaves are to the life of trees. If they are wholly restrained, love will die at the roots.

The Risk of Caring
