How do we feel about these?
Certainly a popular genre, they range across the board into sub-categories for even the most fickle of fans. An avid reader myself I’ll happily confess to having at least one in my book circulation at any given time….mind you I tend to read, on average about 7 books a week.
Being raised in a home where reading was more important than eating, I actually liken books to food….there are times when I indulge myself in a sumptuous and sophisticated meal, just like I’ll treat my mind to some Tolstoy, with a dash of Ezra Pound and top it off with some Kerouac, taking my time with them, savoring each line, slowly….but there are other times I want something fast, something easy, maybe just a little bit sleazy….and that is when a romance novel fits the bill, they’re like fast food for your brain, and sure it’s not going to change the way you see the world and or be something where a quote affects you so deeply, that you write it down and carry it in your pocket for the rest of your life…but if you want to waste a lazy afernoon, they’re more than fine!
I was just wondering, what does the Hive have to say?
