So yesterday's blog didn't happen. Moop.
Here is a catch up post.
Some linky love:
Random Romance Novel Title Generator (thanks to @seanfish) - my current fave "The Scottish Vampire's Insatiable Nurse"
Which makes me think of two things.
1. Romance novels are always better when they involve men in kilts, preferably with an accent. ;-)
2. A lesson I learned back in the dark ages when I worked part time at a public library.. one should not judge a book by it's cover. We had a regular customer who would come in every weekend to borrow a handful of Mills & Boon romances. In my rather immature,Improving Librarian state I looked down my nose at this predilection. I imagined this elderly lady sitting in her flat salivating over the racy bits. One day I decided to be helpful and nicely suggested some other books I thought she would like. She listened to my suggestions and agreed that they sounded interesting. Then she said, a little apologetically, "I get these because I can't sleep at night and they don't require any brain interaction on my part. They help me get through the night and back to sleep." Oh my, I felt about 2 mm tall. So after that I had to revise my opinionated attitudes. People read what they read for many reasons and it is okay. I still make suggestions to people, especially if they ask, but I no longer put on that Improving Librarian hat and look down upon people's choices of reading matter. While I mightn't like their choice, it's not up to me to make that snobby judgement call.
