i'm coming out of the closet. i like a good piece of.....literature just as well as the next person. i read pretty much anything by stephen king (yes, i know that's not considered "literature"), and anita shreve and jodi picoult, etc. when i go to the library my eyes are always bigger than my stomach so to speak and i check out a buttload of books and never get through all of them. yesterday i took books back that i'd not read--two david sedaris books that i really really want to read but just didn't--and some non-fiction that i was trying to will myself to read but didn't. i also did something i never do, took back two books i'd started and didn't finish. i am ashamed.
i did notice that one of our librarians, the one that is the least friendly, reminds me of a female james earl jones w/ dread locks. she even has his voice.
anyway, back to the guilty pleasure cos i know you're dying to know so you can laugh at me ; ) i like romance novels. i prefer the historical romances, but basically anything set in ireland or scotland or england that involves a wench and a rebel coming together w/ sexual tension, denied feelings and finally getting it on are my faves. i know, not high brow at all but what can i say. i've almost finished one i checked out yesterday.
now for the fishy one. the kids and i just got back from the grocery store loading up on camping supplies (we leave in the morning) and i was almost giddy to discover that the store now carries SUSHI. yes. i think i might have squealed a little when i saw the refrigerated display. the girl looked at me funny. i had seen this offering at other grocery stores, but not in any of my local ones. but, today, i was happy. i bought some and promptly scarfed it down while putting the groceries away. sushi is another one of those things that nobody else in my family likes. YUM!
So. Titles... I hanven't read a roamance novel in awhile and maybe I coudl use a wench, a rebel, some sexual tension and some gettignit on this summer.
Ooooh, I loooove sushi!!!!!
OMG, you're a closet bodice ripper! Well, for one thing, you're totally NEVER getting that from David Sedaris!!!! No WONDER you couldn't finish his stuff!!! :)
If Stephen King isn't considered literature,then literature sure ain't worth reading!King is the Man!
sushi at the grocery is the best. my first bodice ripper was "lovely lying lips." surely a classic .. .
If you haven't read the Outlander series, you need to go get it. It's actually the only historical romance I've ever read, and I'm not even sure I got through the whole series... but it's soooo cool.
I like Jodi Picoult too. Easy quick read. I stopped reading Stephen King at Tommyknockers. Too scary. I loved The Stand though...
Have fun camping!
David Sedaris bored me to death...I couldn't wait to get done with that book, and i'm not sure I did.
I'm currently reading Dave Barry, and I also got Lewis Black's "me of little faith". I read things that will help me fall asleep, not keep me up for all hours trying to figure out what's gonna happen.
