Guilty pleasure

4.09.2015

{Raising readers}

Reading is the current guilty pleasure taking me away from more regular blogging. I only call it a "guilty" pleasure because I can't seem to do it with any semblance of balance. Cooking? Housework? Outside activities? A decent bedtime?

OUT THE WINDOW.

I am engulfed. And because I know this is how I work, and life just keeps getting busier and busier as my kids grow older, I allow myself the guilty pleasure of a good book binge less and less. But I do allow it! Reading is good for the soul! (It's also good for the vocabulary. Kendall informs me that mine is vast. Hehe.)

Georgette Heyer is one of my all time favorite authors and I have every single one of her historical romance novels. On my bookshelf and on my kindle. (If you love Jane Austen then you will love Georgette Heyer. Super clean. Very witty. Excellent dialogue. Just ignore her mysteries.) I force myself to wait as long as possible before picking one up again because I know that when I do, I will fall back in love all over again and reread almost all of them.

(THERE ARE OVER 40.)

I think it's been close to 5 whole years since I last went through them all and this past weekend I decided I'd waited long enough. I'm now on # 4 for the week :) 

I'll see ya when I see ya, is what I'm saying ;)


P.S. My very faves? The Foundling, Cotillion, The Convenient Marriage, Devil's Cub, Friday's Child, Frederica... I could go on for a while, actually...

  1. So pleased you're a Georgette fan! Many prolific readers have never heard of her, which I think is scandalous. I'm jealous that you actually OWN them!

    1. I think it's scandalous too! It took me years and years to collect them... many from ebay, until Harelquin starting reprinting them and then I bought 2 or 3 at a time on sale at book stores. It's a treasured collection, for sure!
