Booking Through Thursday
  • Okay, there must be something you read that's a guilty pleasure . . . a Harlequin romance stashed under the mattress. A cheesy sci-fi book tucked in the back of the freezer. A celebrity biography, a phoned-in Western . . . something that you'd really rather not be spotted reading. Even just a novel if you're a die-hard non-fiction fan. Come on, confess. We won't hold it against you!
Don't forget to leave a link to your actual response in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
This week's topic is interesting! I can't wait to read what the others have to say about this, hehe. Let's see... The first thing that came into my mind is: erotic romance. Although I have nothing against this genre, (hey, some DO have great plots too) still I don't wish to be caught reading the book in public especially when the cover features a passionate couple embracing each other with little (or no) clothings...
Now it's your turn to share!

    I thought this would be a fun question!

  2. Melody Says:

    It is, Deb. :) Now am waiting to read what others have to say...hehe.

    This was a fun question!
    (I think the solution to your problem is an ugly, dorky book cover...)

  4. I am also looking forward to what others have to say. You could try investing in a couple of cloth book covers. They not only hide the covers, but also protect the book from bent corners and such.

    Hi teabird, thanks for stopping by my blog. Yeah, perhaps it is. LOL!

    Hi literary feline, I'll have to look for those! LOL!!! Thanks for the recommendations. :)

    Hi Mel! Lovely answer. Haha. Teabird is right. A dorky book cover is all you need to 'mask' it. I wish I knew that when I was reading my Barbara Cartland goodies many moons ago. Alas, my mom found out and I to return them all to my neighbour...

    Happy BTT! :D

  7. I'd bet that most folks looking at your stuff wished they were brave enough to show what THEY read!

    Ain't nothing to be ashamed of...

    Mine's up here.

    Fun! Love the others' ugly, dorky book cover suggestion!

    Heh. The only thing I hide is my erotica stash. Heck, you've seen my blog--I even post reviews of those. Not much shame here. ;-)

  10. Melody Says:

    Thanks, Marianne! :)

    Debi, I really have to think about getting those book covers as a protection, hehe. I have never thought of that and yeah, why not?! ;P

    Darla, I love reading your reviews, and I'm glad you don't hide them!!!!

    Happy reading all.

    I must learn to be like these brave souls over here. LOL.
