Coming out of the Closet!

The shame!! The humiliation! The Guilt! that is what has kept me in the closet, but I am ready to come out.

Here it goes: I am a Romance novel reader!! And I don't care who knows it!

 I love a good Holiday Romance Novel, especially an historical one. I heard that most of the books read on the Kindle,  are Romance Novels, and I can so understand that. Finally it is possible to read these books in public without the shameful cover art that gives it away as a "low brow."
In my stressful life, let's face it I hear enough drama in one day to cover a months worth, I can not heavily invest my emotions in deep reading. I need fluff, and adventure, and easy reading.

My husband calls these books "mamma's porn," but quite frankly whenever the bussoms start heaving, I skip until I see quotation marks. There are only so many ways to describe that stuff, and I just want to get back to the adventure, the descriptions of the clothes and the excitement. I think that is the reason the Twilight Books are so popular, it is Romance without the seady stuff. Romance for romance sake.

I have tomorrow off, I think, so I hope to endulge this weekend in some Holiday Romance Reading. I see hot tea, some good chocolate, some Norwegian Potato chips, and the adventures of the "Earl of SoandSuch" falling head over heels with the pennyless, yet beautiful, brilliant, and sassy, outcast daughter of the Discraced "Baron of Thisandthere."

  1. Oh my goodness I LOVE that cartoon. Hilarious.

    I love romance novels too, especially the ones without all the intimate details. I just like reading about the relationships and adventures. It's nice to get away from real life for a while. I do also love my Barnes and Noble Nook because nobody can tell what I'm reading. Every time I say fantasy everyone rolls their eyes. Sheesh there's more to life than reading the newspaper and textbooks lol. :)

    Thank you for your comment on Chrome's blog. Normally there is not anything in the bottom of our trailer except for rubber mats, but we put that old hay in there when we had him gelded to help with traction since he would be unsteady from the anesthesia. I didn't want him eating it because it was old and gross. I can't believe he liked it. At the very beginning of the first you can see me pulling it out of his mouth. I forgot to mention at the beginning I was putting iodine on his incision from his gelding. I included it to show how laid back he is about it, because everyone always freaks out when I tell them I was picking hay out of them, softening scabs and medicating him and not getting kicked lol. Gonna go back and edit the post to add that. :)


Thank you for your Feedback! I learn so much from hearing from readers, it is the real value of writing a blog.
