The best thing to do with purple prose, aside from laughing and rolling one's eyes, is to employ it for a crushing workout. A quivering workout, even. Possibly a throbbing workout! Time for Romance Novel Reader Workout #14!
Like the previous workouts, can do all these exercises with a mat and your own bodyweight. No handweights are needed unless you want to use some.
For this one, you'll need to grab a romance with as much purple prose as possible, and prepare to work!
Standard disclaimers still apply: dude, for reals, I'm not a physician. I don't even play one on tv. 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.
I can give you the following advice, however: drink plenty of water and read plenty of books.
But wait! By reader request, I have a convenient PDF of all 15 workouts so far, including workouts 1-14 and the ever-popular and alas-still-needed plagiarism workout. Each page has two images on it, and the PDF is 1.4MB in size. You are welcome to print and distribute the workouts, give them as gifts, or use them as bookmarks.
And now, Romance Novel Reader Workout, Part XIV, in graphic form suitable for pinning, sharing, printing, and pointing at!
If you have questions or suggestions for future workouts, please share, either in the comments or via email. And if these workouts have been helpful for you, either as exercise tools or as a source of gym entertainment, I'm very glad!
But above all, unless you faint, puke, or die, KEEP READING! AND BREATHING!
