I have a confession to make...




I actually like the novels that I've read by Nicholas Sparks.

Yes, you read that correctly [shock, horror]. After chatting with another blogger about two months ago and discussing some of our likes and dislikes, I decided to take up the unspoken(?) challenge and give them a whirl. It wasn't much of a shock (to me anyway) that I do indeed have a soft underside. Yeah, I'm a sensitive guy. Wanna fight about it? ;>)

So much so that when I went to the library on Monday, I checked out two more of his books. Not a tough choice since I'd only read those two. Plenty more to choose from.

Granted, they are not my standard fare of reading material but it's always good to expand your horizons, right? That's what I thought, too.

These are the books I picked this time:

I liked The Notebook and Message in a Bottle (although not the film adapation of the latter). I do agree, he's a very talented writer. Too many people like to line up to verbally beat up commercially successful authors.

Nicholas Sparks is indeed a talented guy. I've read several of his books, and I'm sure to read more. The books are always better than the movies, but I enjoy those too. Green, how nice that you can admit to reading AND LIKING him!

Stephanie: I've still not watched the film version of The Notebook even though my sister has it. I may watch the film version of Message in a Bottle, when I'm finished.

Have you read True Believer? I liked that one better (slightly) than The Notebook.

ocl: thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. New readers are always welcome and new commenters are even better!

Yea, he's a very good author. It's no surprise that some of his novels have been transformed onto the big screen.

d: that's why I titled the post as I did... if it weren't for that chat, I would not have even considered reading one of his books.

There's nothing wrong with that!

I'm not a big fan of Nicholas Sparks, but love that you admit to reading him:)
Lately, I've been in the mood for "upbeat" novels...the books I've read of his have tended to be "downers".
I'll send my girls over to clean your bathrooms...they have lots of experience;)
