A Guilty Pleasure



The occasional guilty pleasure lights up my life––and my library––so I'm here to share a frothy summer novel with all of you (my favorite readers). It's title is While We Were Watching Downtown Abbey, written by Wendy Wax, an author I accidentally tripped over before falling headfirst into an inexplicably fizzy pool of warm and fuzzy fun.

I freely admit that While We Were Watching is no literary masterpiece; in fact, it's chick lit squared, but it tickled my fancy enough that I read it straight through in one sitting. I'm not exactly certain what it was I found so captivating, but let it be said that I was captivated all the same. For reasons beyond any form of rational analysis, I grinned all the way through it.

Would you believe me if I said that I inhaled the tasty little tome like cherry soda, entirely against my will? Check it out, and let me know if your power to resist is stronger than mine.

{just don't be smug about it}

Those are the best pleasures, the guilty ones.
I admit to reading free books on my ipad, like Agatha Christie and such. Only occasionally though, when I don’t feel like improving my mind or getting down to things. And when it’s hot.

Even chicklit, but very rarely. The stuff is usually poorly written and I get annoyed. (Not that Christie is good writing)

I don’t feel guilty about it but I prefer not to tell anyone.

So do you think one would like the book if they don't watch Downton Abbey? I mean, would it make sense still?

A bit of help if you can...
I've had 3 computers worked on this past few months.
Now this laptop, when I sign in to blog, then view blog, signs me back out. I type things in the address for the 5th time and it doesn't give me other options with the same start. I know my computer guy is real cautious about stuff, but do you know what he might have turned on or turned off that I can change??
I miss blogging. I've been crazy busy, but this has been quite a hassle and I just give up.
Hope all is well with you..
