"Perhaps they were right in putting love into books…Perhaps it could not live anywhere else."

Spread the Love Fablebands

I am, shamelessly and unequivocally, polygamous. I love them all—the young and tender with the freshness of transformed biology encoded into odors that waft heavenward upon my touch; the old, decrepit and worn but experienced in their ways, with surety acquired through trials and tribulations, warriors of times past, immortal and persistent; the petite and lovable; the large ones, limited in mobility, but vigorous and muscular; the speakers of foreign tongues, full of mystery, through sounds guttural and sensual caressing my soul through time honored vibrations; the intellectuals and academics, serious and reserved, yet wise, impartial, and logical, in argument always fair; the religious, shy and tremulous, but somehow, paradoxically, experienced and full of wisdom; the adventurous, walkers of the edge, always at the threshold of life and death, sweating, poignant and terminal, forever certain, forever willing.

You may find me scandalous, but what is a girl to do in this age of books, all ready for the picking, all vouching for my attention.

I can’t help but spread the love.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Reading is indeed fundamental, I’d even venture to say essential. Beyond basic education and literacy reading holds the key to your ultimate success. How so? Let us explore…
