Romance Novel Reader Workout IX

burly bicep holding stack of booksTime for another romance reader workout! You ready? This time, we're talking titles and cover art.

Like the last few workouts, can do all these exercises with a mat and your own body. No handweights are needed unless you want to use some. Grab your latest romance and prepare to work out like working has never been outed before.

Standard disclaimers still apply: dude, I'm still not a physician. I can recommend books to read but I can't discern your state of health or your physical limitations so by all means work hard but be kind to yourself. To put it another way, ask your doctor before beginning any exercise regimen.

However, I am confident in my ability to offer the following advice: drink plenty of water and read plenty of books. Both are good for you. Especially the books. You should read one book per half-kilogram of bodyweight. 

And now, Romance Novel Reader Workout, Part IX, in graphic form suitable for pinning, sharing, printing, and pointing at!

You know what to do: grab your book & play along! If your book meets the following conditions, do the corresponding exercise. Then, when you finish a chapter, do that activity again.</p>

Expect your new workout to leave you a little breathless. And if you find a book with nosehair clippers on the cover, please notify me immediately. (I love ice cream!)

If you have questions or suggestions for future workouts, please share, either in the comments or via email. Remember, above all, unless you faint, puke, or die, KEEP READING! AND BREATHING!

    I’m going to name my next book Delaware’s Delicious Desire just for you, Sarah.

    New Jersey’s Notorious Nights?

    Chocolate in Idaho?

    I do not like how you so cleverly kept chocolate off-limits in this workout routine. I might have to find a new health guru.

    Time to write a book set in Alabama that involves a male barber who does nose hair clippings and then sets people on fire if they don’t like his nose hair clippers. The title will be Passions Flaming Desires and will involve a ditzy manicurist and an intrepid former cop who lost all his nose hairs hunting our murderer down.

    Or, for the ultimate crossover novel,  perhaps a ditzy baker chick next door who specializes in Nosehair au Chocolat Pies….
    The title of course would be Peinie Odd, and the author?
    Deenie Coontz, of course! 

    (Sorry, it’s been a rough day.)

    They have Idaho romances? If people have Texas accents in them I will break things.

    The words Virgin/Innocent. Please. And extra long titles like “The Well-hung Billionaires Dalliance with a Sexy Dame, LOL, just kidding she is a sassy virgin”. WHERE IS THE MYSTERY PEOPLE? Save some details for the actual book!
