Review of Love Sayings: Wit and Wisdom of Romance, Courtship and Marriage by Bradford G. Wheler - A Book Collaborative Series

Book Readers Heaven has been authorized by the author, Bradford G. Wheler, to use as much of the book as I am able to provide the time and space... Cool, right? The reason we talked about this was because of the unique collection provided. Here's part of the book's introductiion:

This book features 48 artists from 14 different countries. Many of the artists in this book are full-time professional artists or photographers. Others love painting and photographing as a hobby. They exhibit a wonderful range of artistic styles.

I established BookCollaborative.com to publish books based on the content provided by artists. The goal is to create a collaborative community to promote art in general. At the same time, artists have the opportunity to promote their own artwork in books...to be interesting and fun...



Love Sayings:
wit and wisdom of romance, courtship and marriage


By Bradford G. Wheler


There is no better way to say it than to acknowledge that Bradford Wheler has certainly succeeded in his goal for this book: to promote artwork from individual artists and photographers, and to make it fun and interesting at the same time!

From the front cover to the back, there is an emphasis on accenting the content as well as the individual contributions! The series has a standard cover, which certainly creates a notable marketing tool! The insert on the front cover is the only thing that changes. For instance, I loved his novel, Inca's Death Cave, and also Cat Sayings! (Click over to read my reviews! Hmmm, wonder why I didn't think to negotiate using the beautiful works on cats...you may see more of those pics in the future! LOL)

To complement the book's art, the author has researched and collected an amazing number of "love sayings" and placed then in categories. Sometimes there even seems to be a correlation between the art and the saying which can add more fun! 

I must add a little about the inside layout. There has been every attempt to capture the eye as each page is turned...from the multi-color heart design at an upper corner of each page, into the color-change of print for each saying and author, on to the delightful display of each art centerpiece for the page, down to a heart-enclosed page number! For me, this attention to detail illustrates the type of overall attention to quality which has been made to the book. Even though the size is smaller than usual, this could very well be considered of coffee-table quality material that can be proudly displayed for visitors anywhere. It is guaranteed to capture attention and bring smiles, laughter, or sometimes provide thought-provoking words for each reader's attention...

Here's today's offering from Love Sayings for women:

Women want mediocre men, and men are working
hard to become as mediocre as possible.
--Margaret Mead


If women are expected to do the same work as men,
we must teach them the same things.
--Plato


The thing women have yet to learn is
nobody gives you power. You just take it.
--Roseanne Barr
