Warm banana bread with melting butter.
Steaming hot coffee with cold creamer.
Silly, never-gonna-happen-in-real-life romantic comedies.
Cozying up with a good book and reading all day.
All those wonderful guilty pleasures happened today, and I’m not the least bit sorry they did. I don’t know if you’re familiar with the author Rainbow Rowell, but she writes quirky books. I first read Eleanor and Park, followed by Landline. They were both cute and quirky. Something different from the typical protagonists. Our school library just received a new order of books and a Rainbow Rowell book just happened to be amongst them. I instantly snatched it up for myself. It’s called Attachments. I knew one of my students would also like it, as we have already discussed this author and our love for her. She instantly saw it laying on my desk when she came in, and we instantly went fangirl and started talking about it. I told her I’d read it this weekend, and she could take in Monday to read. The students around us thought we were complete dorks, but it was a good moment to show them how fun it could be to talk about and love books.
So, I read. And read. It was nice to have an excuse (to finish the book by Monday so that student could read it) to indulge myself in my guilty pleasure.
