Greetings to all you book lovers. This the first blog for The Book Sage. My goal is to create a dialogue with those of you who want to talk books. I hope that we will all learn about new authors and new books and that more reading is the end result for everybody. I know that our mutual love of books (whether they be in hardcover, paperback, or on an ereader) and this give-and-take will lead to more people reading more of the time. If you're looking for any intellectual discourse or deep philosophical discussions, you've come to the wrong blog. This blog is for the readers who want to enjoy their books. I don't want it to feel like a school assignment. All of us have to make time to fit our reading in, and it should be enjoyable.
In the coming posts, I will discuss different genres and some of my favorite books from those genres. I will want to know what your favorites are too. Everybody benefits from these lists. Let's start by hearing any comments that any of you may have about the direction you would like to see this blog go. Although I have no problem with (trying to) impose my will on everybody (and it is, in fact, my blog!), I would actually prefer to make it more interactive. Your comments will always be welcome.
Let the games (and books) begin.
