Re: Why do you come to BookTalk?

Unread post

I'm interested in books and discussions that can present me with new ideas for consideration and which can help me refine my own thoughts and opinions. I am also pleased to discover a community here that differs from what I usually find at home: People whose only interest is to talk gossip, sports, or fluff TV shows. No doubt somewhere in my area there are people who think over issues and ideas and keep an open mind, but perhaps they have learned to keep their thoughts to themselves, as I have, to avoid rejection and isolation.When reading I often find myself wishing I could share or discuss a passage from a book, if not the whole book, and would like to learn of other books and authors through a reciprocal exchange. The people I know, however, have no interest in books of substance, and while fluff reading and entertainment are fine once in a while, I get to hungering for something more meaty and challenging. BookTalk sounds like a wonderful place in which such wishes can be fulfilled."Everything that Mr. Smallweed's grandfather ever put away in his mind was a grub at first, and is a grub at last. In all his life he has never bred a single butterfly."--Charles Dickens, "Bleak House"
