PostSecret

In case you weren’t aware, Romance is the most successful genre of books; it’s also the most popular/successful type of EBook purchase.  Coincidence? I think not.  This PostSecret “secret” really touches on the secretive nature of the new digital mediums that are allowing people to read whatever they want without anyone knowing.  The conservative Christian reading Chelsea Handler?  The heterosexual reading about being gay?  The wife looking into divorce? Handheld devices have really returned reading to a private endeavor.

Interesting insight in an amusing/frivolous way.  Now if I could just get someone to donate an EReader to me so I could explore what non-socially acceptable books I may enjoy…

Ironically, after posting about “The Little Prince” yesterday I visited another of my favorite websites this morning, http://www.postsecret.com, and discovered I’m not alone in my adoration of this book.

Though I like to think I learned  more during my four years at the University of Dayton (I think my parents would kill me if I told them my private-school education could be replaced with this $10 book!), I do offer this further proof of the powerful and inspirational message in the story.

I encourage all of you reading this to visit http://www.postsecret.com and find pieces of yourself in the secrets shared by others.  The site is updated every Sunday.

Thank you for sharing, PostSecret!
