So the main root of us people reading the blog is that we are readers.
We've taken the flack, the stupid looks, the rolled eyes and the friggin judgement.
I've walked miles in my shoes and damn they are cozy and all broken in and you can say whatever you want about my reading and I won't even flinch.
I just smile that smile that only real romance readers know is a 'fuck you' smile.
Cause they have no clue.
Well, my favourite peeps, I've discovered a few converts in the last number of days.
My best bud admitted just a few weeks ago that she will no longer read books that don't have a romantic thread.
Yeah!!! Take that, you literature, depression freaks!
Sure, she's been reading for years but she's finally come to the dark side. I even mocked her just a bit cause she's a big girl and can take it. After all, there were many guffaws over my book stacks.
Then another friend who isn't a reader asked to borrow a few books. So I went easy on her. Gave her books that are more epic in scope - those Robyn Carr books. Then she wanted more. Uh, okay. So I threw together a jumble of books that I won't re-read cause in reality she is tough on books. My poor books don't know what hit them! I told her tonight to get a library card cause I wasn't going to lend her my keepers. She was surprised.
What books did I lend her? I threw in Karen Rose (haven't read but thought she would like) a Lori Foster, Lisa Kleypas Blue-Eyed Devil, Sara Paretsky (have no clue but it's on my shelf) and a Susan Donovan.
Yep, she's all about the Lori Foster.
Cause her book was hot. *sigh*
So I gave her the rest of the Lori Fosters I could find in my TBR pile. I know I'm missing a few but can't remember where I would have put them.
She didn't read either the Rose or Paretsky.
Yeah, so how do ya like them apples.
I was trying to think if this was a victory. Should I be doing a victory lap?
And then I realize they are raiding MY books!
Nope. Not having it.
Get your own TBR pile!
Mine is 20 years old dammit.
Did I mention my friend cracks the spines in multiples? I mean, I'm no sissy when it comes to my books but they look like she ran them through a washing machine.
