This week's Booking Through Thursday question asks about "hot reading." Specifically:
Well, folks, I don’t know about where you are, but right here, it’s HOT.I used to associate hot summer weather with reading long, fluffy novels with plenty of romance, empire building, and inter-generational conflict -- The Shell Seekers, for example, or Kane and Able. But once I started working, summer was no longer a special time to lollygag by the pool or on the back porch with a cool drink and a hot book. Summer is just three more months in the office.
So … when you think about “hot reading,” what does that make you think of? Beach reading? Steamy romances? Books that take place in hot climates? Or cold ones?
I am going to try this year to recreate those enjoyable summer reading experiences. I just got a copy of Valley of the Dolls. Now all I need is a sun hat and a G&T.
