After Looking through some blogs on the Hop I discovered a new-to-me meme going on in the book blogger world.
Book Beginnings on Friday, hosted by Becky at Page Turners, is another Mr. Linky method to get us bloggers to connect. All that is required? Just the first sentence of the latest book you are reading.
I'm currently reading a non-fiction book titled How Fantasy Becomes Reality: Seeing Through Media Influence. Written by Karen E. Dill, a social psychologist, this book analyzes how the media (tv, music, movies, and even reading material) shapes western culture and one's perception of themselves.
How Fantasy Becomes Reality begins by stating "right now, at this moment in history, Americans are having a love affair with mass media."
I admit, this does sound dry, to the point, and something that we all knew... but the book is really interesting. I'm only 46 pages in (just started reading last night) but I can't wait to do a real review of Dill's work.
