|No matter what they're actually reading, a lot of people who|
read in public look surprisingly furtive about it.
So, of course, I'm telling the whole Internet about it now.
I don't read romance, but there's still a chance that I will run across a sex scene in the other genre titles I read. I'm glad I read mostly at home because when I used to read more in public, while waiting for a class to start or for a bus to arrive, I would immediately become hyper-aware of what my face was doing and suffer from almost terminal blushing. I'm almost 33 years old, but every now and then, when I read about sex, I feel like a teenager when my friend told me I had to read certain pages from Melanie Rawn's The Dragon Prince. By the end of the semester, my friend had passed the book around so much that it had a permanent crack in the spine at that part.
It's so hard not to feel like a pervert when you run across a sex scene in a book. I shouldn't, but I do. And now, my Amazon recommendations are all messed up. Amazon's algorithm has me pegged as a perv now, damn it.
