“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” ― G.K. Chesterton

     As I state in my welcome paragraph, I used to pick up a book, get halfway through, and then get to a really graphic part.  Needless to say, I have stumbled across many books that were not "clean" reads, just to chuck them across the floor in frustration after having invested many hours of my time and emotions into the book and characters.  But being a Christian, I remember Philippians 4:8 when considering my reading material:
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  
     That is why I rejoiced when I discovered Goodreads, because I saw that others would write in the "review" section whether a book was "clean" or not.  Because let's face it, if someone loves Regencies, there is not a ton of Regency Christian fiction out there.  (Luckily there has been a whole lot more that have stemmed up recently though!)  Now those of us who desire to have integrity in what we read can help one another out.
     I also love reading Christian fiction, which is the majority of what I read.  It is great to read reviews of Christian fiction to see what is good out there and I really appreciate those who write those reviews.  I hope to help others by doing the same!
