National Geographic: The Truth About Pit Bulls

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pit Bulls have gotten bad rap due to the way they are used.  On account of their natural brute and strength, humans use this breed as attacking dog guards and fighting killers, and because of this Pit Bulls are subjected to breed discrimination on a daily basis.  However, it is not their breed that is harmful, it is the way they are raised and trained.

Yes, certain dogs are aggressive, and sometimes those dogs may be of the Pit Bull breed, however just because one dog of a certain breed is threatening, does not make the breed itself dangerous.  The majority of Pit Bull dogs are loyal and friendly animal companions, and even those who have been subjected to terrible abuse by humans may also be able to be rehabilitated.  It is not the dog that we should fear, but the human owner.

Click on the link above and read the truth about Pit Bulls.  And even though it is necessary to take certain precautions when around dogs you do not know – this goes for all breeds – make sure to keep an open mind and do not discriminate against any certain breed.

Happy Tuesday All!

Link of the Day: Read and Wander

Flavorwire:  The Flâneur in Fiction – Great Books About Wandering the City

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After reading a post by one of my favorite blog authors, TBM, and her lovely stroll around London, I just knew this article had to be my Link of the Day!

I love to travel, and there honestly is nothing better than wandering, sometimes aimlessly, around a new city.  There really is no need to necessarily visit the “tourist destinations” of a new place, because it’s the sights, sounds, and people you discover while exploring that makes you really connect with your surroundings.

So, to coincide with TBM’s post today (and I do suggest you check out her blog), check out the link above to see some interesting books that focus on exploring and wandering.

Happy Friday All!

Flavorwire:  Judging 2012 Book Covers – US vs. UK

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I admit that I find book covers absolutely intriguing; with different designs and different texts, book covers really do tell a lot about the words lingering inside.  And the greatest thing about book covers: that every book has a few different cover versions.

At Flavorwire.com, they put together 36 different 2012 books, and compared the US book cover versions with the UK ones.  So, which do you prefer?  Flavorwire gave their answers, and now it’s time to give yours!

Let us know in the comment section below which covers you prefer!

Happy Thursday All!

Flavorwire:  10 Redesigned Book Covers That Are Actually Better Than the Iconic Versions

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The design of book covers are important.  It is what a reader initially sees, and many readers (myself included) have been known to buy a book based solely off its cover.

These 10 redesigns of some classic literature covers have been described as being even better than the original cover designs.  And there’s no doubting that the redesigned book cover above of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 45  is pretty kick-ass.

So, check out the link above and see some more creative redesigns of famous books, and let us know in the comment section below which is your favorite!  My personal vote goes to Fahrenheit 45!
