Booking Through Thursday: Guilty Pleasure
Booking Through Thursday asks:
What book(s) have you read that you’re secretly ashamed to admit?
Well… on the one hand, reading Regency romance makes me very glad I can read the books as library loans on my Kindle. I’m proud to read Lauren Willig on the subway and otherwise in public, both because her covers are more decorous, and because she’s just a good writer.
I’m not completely ashamed of myself for reading Regency romance though. If it’s a good book, and I enjoy it, I’m not going to feel any guilt or remorse.
I’m rather proud that I haven’t read 50 Shades of Gray yet. Even though I sometimes think that I should at least try to read it, so that I know what I’m scorning, I’m fairly certain I’ll never read it. What I’ve heard about the dubious writing quality makes me more reluctant than the sexual themes and content. Also, it’s trendy, so I figure I’ll learn everything I need to know about it by osmosis.
I’m more sheepish about some of the television shows I love. Crime dramas and scifi cheese are one thing… but I’m also rather fond of some of those family episode dramas, and not the cool ones like American Family, either.
