I have a small secret that's really no secret at all because I'm sure I've mentioned it: as far as books are concerned, I love indulging in a good, almost tacky fantasy book. Dragons, elves, magic, swords, kingdoms and wars. I love all of that. I've never been a fan of "classics" or "must read" books, but smaller "juvenile fiction" books hold a special place in my heart.
Try as I may, I just can't sit through most books of that sort. I am sure they have their merits, and probably a good reason to being a "high and mighty" book, but they're just not for me. I'm rather content in my small, unrealistic and unlikely fantasy land. I can read the other books, but I draw little enjoyment from most. Why am I so worried about what other people think, anyway?
So this weekend, taking advantage of the rare luxury of internet at my parents' house, I got a few free books from Amazon. Gotta love the Kindle and its large stock of free books! And changes their free content often. Every once in a while you find a few gems at no additional cost. The books I got? All of them fantasy. Sorry to disappoint you, world. Right now I'm reading The Book of Deacon, and I find it hard to put down. It had me at the introduction. It isn't the greatest and most fantastic book by any means, but it's good enough for me.
Talk about cheap entertainment, eh?
