Melissa Cassera at Tiny Buddha re-defines a “guilty pleasure” as something that ignites and electrifies you in a way that should be totally illegal, but isn’t. She thinks it's should be something you should enjoy every day, with wild abandon.
I could not agree more.
Today I have three wonderful readers, bloggers and fellow “champions of guilty pleasure reads” on the blog. Say hello to Jules from Jules Bookshelf, Mishma from Chasing Faerytales and Sydney from A Daring Adventure!
NUZAIFA: The notion that somehow certain books are more worthy than others is utterly ridiculous. The idea that one should be ashamed of reading mainstream books that entertain/amuse readers is silly. If the book that you choose to read is one that teaches you a life lesson, takes a position on social issues or if it is an award winning one, that's all well and good.
However, the snobbery about what constitutes literature and what doesn't needs to end.
