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."
