Guilty Pleasure: Books

My Guilty Pleasure would be my books.

To escape into a book, to shut off from the world for a while is bliss. I have always loved delving into a book but now I’ve had a baby time is precious and grabbing a book is definitely a guilty pleasure indeed. Washing up, laundry all get left for a while. I think you need to escape every now and then. You need to be able to switch off. Reading a book does that for me.

I have been trying to read all of the BBC list of Top 100 Books for about 2 years. I am slowly getting there and I plan to write a review for each one. I have read some interesting books I’d never have thought to read through going through this list. One being Life of Pi. I just finished Pillars of The Earth which I would also recommend.

I joined the Britmums Book Club and that is also great. Reading and talking to others about books is great indeed. My favourite book so far is the current one A Buddha In The Attic.

I also used to follow Dawn O’Porters twitter book club Cold Water Books and I do still try to but keep missing it. Best book I’ve read through this club is Let’s Talk About Kevin.

So books are my guilty pleasure. They are a great love of mine and I’ll always find time for them.

What’s your guilty pleasure?
