Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

Book Blogger Hop

This week’s prompt: What author do you not read and why?

 (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews.)

I am not an avid reader. In fact, I sometimes hate reading. There are a lot of authors I don’t read for various reasons. For instance, I am Catholic so I will not read Charles Darwin or Stephen Hawking. Does that make me a stupid bitch? Idk but I believe in God i.e: Father, Son, Holy Spirit, whereas am I to presume these two people never believed in God their whole life? I have my opinions and when it comes to my faith I feel strongly. Also, neither does it mean I will read an author only, or just because they are Catholic. Heaven’s No! I have a feeling that most authors I read believe in God in some way or another though.

    Hi! I saw your comment on my BBH post, but was a bit confused, as I have seen your other blog, “Jackie’s Bookbytes”. I checked out your profile on Blogger, and only that blog is listed. This one, “Jackie’s Forget Me Nots”, is not listed on your profile. So I wasn’t sure you were the same person! Lol. Then I came to this blog, since it’s the one you linked up with on the Book Blogger Hop, and checked out your “About Me” page. So now I know I have the right person! 🙂

    I’m Catholic, too, but I do read widely. I haven’t read Darwin or Hawking, but I would not hesitate to do so. However, I totally respect your choice not to read books by these authors. I don’t usually read very scientific books, though. My nonfiction choices are more in the fields of psychology, philosophy, and theology, and I do read widely in these fields.

    As for fiction, the things that really bother me are foul language, and overly graphic sex scenes. In fact, I do prefer clean reads. The two fiction genres I refuse to read are horror and erotica. Both are totally repulsive to me! Although I didn’t mention her in my blog post, I also detest E.L. James, the author of the 50 Shades of Grey series.

    Thanks for sharing! And thanks as well for commenting on my BBH post!! Hope you’re having a GREAT Saturday!! ❤ 🙂

    P.S. I mentioned your other blog in a post I wrote regarding blogs with dark backgrounds. I LOVE "Jackie's Bookbytes" because you use a dark background on that blog!

    Here's the link to the post where I mentioned "Jackie's Book Bytes":

      Sorry about the confusion. Yes I have two blogs 🙂 . Anyway I would not read EL James’ books 50 Shades of Grey aka smut either. I do read paranormal romance and that sometimes has a lot of erotica like in the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Don't Eat That

The food pyramid is a lie, meat fat is good for you, and many (if not most) health problems are treatable with diet alone. I'm in remission from severe arthritis (multiple joints replaced), chronic fatigue, depression and a plethora of other symptoms from changing how I eat. This blog chronicles how my family and my parents eat and what it's done for us.
