Missing in Action from Blogging
Where have I been? Compulsively reading, it's a bad habit of mine. I get caught up in a book and nothing else gets done. I may throw a token load of laundry in the washer, but that's about it when I get going on a good book.
On Thursday night, I started Natural Born Charmer by Susan Michelle Phillips. I love her books, and this particular series of romances are about various members of a fictitious Chicago football team. Are the plots ridiculous? Sure they are, but Phillip's writing is fun. Her main characters are witty and sarcastic, along with secondary characters that have their own issues which add to the story. Finished that book last night and started a second book last night.
The second book was by Fern Michaels, The Marriage Game and I finished it an hour ago. (This book was smaller print and took me longer) On a gorgeous May day, I was sitting on my porch reading all morning. Was this book worth it? Umm, not really. The plot was absolutely dumb, I liked the characters and would rate this as a good beach read.
Both books were romances and fun reads. If I had really been thinking ahead, I would have made a tee time to go golfing this morning, but I was so tired this week, that I just wanted to sleep in. So that's what I did today, slept in, read a book, made pasta salad and now it's time to join the real world. What do you call a lazy day?
