Thank to Lori, Leslie, and many others for the heads up: One of this week’s Post Secrets is from a woman who sent in a post card made from the cover of a Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ novel. Her postcard reads:
“I am too intellectual and sophisticated to be seen reading ‘chick lit.’ Thank goodness for audio books and ipods.”
As I said to Lori, this postcard makes me feel glad to know how many women I’ve met through SBTB who are proud to read romance and don’t care what anyone thinks. And at the same time it makes me sad because boy howdy there are some hella judgmental people who probably would sniff at this woman for reading what she calls “chick lit.”
Yo, post secret lady. Come on in. The water’s fine and friendly over here. You’re awesome just the way you are.
And, in the event that you are still not sure about the whole ebook thing, Janet Mullany and many others including SomonaLass and Brandi, sent me a link that’s sure to convince you that everything paper books do, ebooks can do, too. Even the smell: The Smell of Ebooks, available in five aromas, including “Eau You Have Cats.” That name cracks me up like damn.
