The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week poses a book-related question. The hop starts on Friday and ends on Thursday. The purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers.
If it was to the extent that it morally or ethically clashed with my beliefs, I would discontinue reading the book. In fact, I have done so in the past and I even wrote all about it. In 2014 I read what I thought would be a helpful book, Who You Callin’ Silly? How a Silly Woman Becomes Virtuous. Essentially, if you’re not a virtuous woman, you’re silly. Whatever definition the author (also a pastor’s wife) considers silly.
Here is a paragraph I wrote to wrap up:
I was also quite annoyed with what I had read, but after thinking about what I’d read, I realized this book isn’t for me. I’m not a woman who needs this book – I’m already there. I know my self worth and don’t need validation. Ever get annoyed with someone trying to tell you how to do something, and you already know? After brooding on this a while, I realized that’s kind of where I was at with what I had read.
