The Love, Hate, & Indifference of Literature


This is a sponsored post that contains affiliate links

Life can truly be experienced in a multitude of ways. Food can ignite all of the senses and impart the same amount of knowledge as if you are going after your second doctorate. Crafting has the ability to allow you to feel the seasoning of life through your hands. Books are not only the window to the world, but they are also the window into the depths of people souls. J.C. Hallman handsomely displays in B & Me A True Story Of Literary Arousal, how literature can connect the dots in your life and take you places that you would have never imaged.


Reading a books can be exciting, fun, and rewarding. But taking a step back and exploring the question 'Why do I read' cam lead to some fascinating facts about yourself and the way literature is presented to the masses. This exploration would no doubt be more penetrating to a Professor of Literature. The commentary in  B & Me A True Story Of Literary Arousal is not uptight, snotty, or uncomfortable. You will be able to relate to the author on so many levels.

"That kind of communication, intimate and intended to generate physiological reaction, is exactly how reading once was and ought to be, but no longer is." This quote is the nucleus of the entire book. Hallman reaches a point in his life where his passion for literature is depleting and being challenged throughout this daily life.  Reminiscing on the intensity of love he once had for reading, he begins to question what were these feelings all about. Through his lengthy knowledge of authors and books Hallmman examines his hate of new age literature, his indifference to the culture of literature, and his new found love and understanding of literature.

I am not an avid reader, but  B & Me A True Story Of Literary Arousal has sparked and interest in me to learn about peoples lives through their passions and has made me examine my own live through my passion. I would highly recommend reading this book. You will be thoroughly entertained from beginning to end.

I would love to read this book. I can get lost in a book for days until I finish reading them. When I start a series, it goes into weeks, day in and day out. It's not unusual for me to stay up all night reading as well. Thanks for sharing this book, it's now sparked my interest.

When I was younger, I could read a book in a day. I often got in trouble for reading at the dinner table, or sneaking a book into bed. I'm not sure what happened, but my love for reading has diminished over the years. Maybe reading a book like this can reignite it!
