Booking Through Thursday

'Fess Up

Okay, there must be something you read that's a guilty pleasure . . . a Harlequin romance stashed under the mattress. A cheesy sci-fi book tucked in the back of the freezer. A celebrity biography, a phoned-in Western . . . something that you'd really rather not be spotted reading. Even just a novel if you're a die-hard non-fiction fan. Come on, confess. We won't hold it against you!

I don't have a problem displaying any books I read. Reading is reading is reading and I read everything from biographies, classics, current best sellers, chick lit to the Fabio covered smut books. Sometimes I read to gain knowledge, sometimes it's to get caught up in a fabulous story, and sometimes I read trashy romances because I just want to read, but don't want to do a lot of thinking.
I hide certain books in my home simply because I have a curious 10 year daughter who also likes to read and I really don't need her asking me about the fantasy she read about in Nancy Friday's Men In Love or Zane's lastest novel.

Hi Ebony, thanks for taking the time to read my post. :-) As you say, reading is reading, and reading is never something to be ashamed of!

LOL I can understand your desire to hide certain books from your curious daughter. She'll be reading them soon enough, no doubt. :-)
