Are you the type of reader, that gets utterly excited when you walk into a room full of books? You start smiling and becoming giddy like a kid in a candy store. If so, you have just made a new friend in me.
A few years ago, I was in a bookstore in New York City. As most avid readers I was in heaven just being amongst the thousands of books. I was truly in my glory. Sadly, I realized that I could not be in the store forever. Looking for Christian Romance novels I headed to the back of the store. I wanted to read clean fiction where sex was not the focal point. The aisle title Christian drew me right in. This is where I could find the books I desired.
There were about six wide tall stands placed side by side. As I excitedly started to search through them, I became less enthused. It seemed that everything was packed together on the same level as Christian Fiction. There were also manuals on preaching better with the genre I was looking for and books to improve bible study teachings.
For some reason everything associated with Christianity were housed together. I found that rather odd because on the very next aisle titled Romance, there were twice as many books on the shelves. Not only that but there were at least four complete lanes with nothing but Romance. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against regular romance. I’m the owner of many romance novels myself. The thing is I wanted to read a faith based romantic novel.
I couldn’t find what I wanted in the store so I created The Reading & Writing Spot. This is my own area where people like myself can find Christian & Inspirational writings. Authors from all levels will be here in this space. I finally found what I was looking for and it was right under my nose. This is my happy place.
