Books are my Candy

24 Jan

Sweets. Candy. Chocolate. Jaw breakers. Licorice. Lemon drops. Peppermint patties.

Candy entices many people. They long to enjoy that sugar buzz or the flavor of a dark chocolate candy bar with a gooey caramel center. Perhaps the bitter and sweet taste of gummy candies.

The love I hear of candy, expresses well how I feel about books (most candy does not interest me). Don’t I mean reading? No, I don’t. I enjoy getting into a book more than I enjoy magazines, online articles, or the newspaper. A book to me is as luscious and enticing as chocolate is to most people.

Mysteries. Biographies. Humor. Oh my! Give me a Lorna Landvik tale or a Janet Evanovich adventure. Oh, a sweet mystery by Joanne Fluke, JoAnna Carl, or Diane Mott Davidson. Then there’s kitty cat sleuths with Rita Mae Brown or Miranda James. Delicious!!!
