Guilty Pleasures for Bookshelf Bingo

Posted by diane on

woman-reading-outsideThere’s nothing wrong with going on a beach-read bender over the summer.  In fact, if you’re playing along with our Adult Summer Reading Bookshelf Bingo, you’ll earn a completed square when you finish that “Guilty Pleasure” book.

What, you only read Pulitzer-Prize winners?  That’s okay, too. There’s no rule that says a guilty pleasure has to be poorly written!  It can be a book you’re reading when you’re really supposed to be doing something else… like cooking dinner, or doing the laundry.

In any case, I’m sure you won’t have trouble finding a fun book for yourself, but just in case, here are some book lists we’ve made that can help.

Speaking of dinner, if you love food (and who doesn’t), try some of these culinary reads. Our list ranges from light-hearted fiction featuring a chef kidnapped by a pirate, or a caterer with a magic touch, to non-fiction by adventurous food critics and a baker in Paris.

Or try this list combining romance and comedy, that we’ve called My Funny Valentine.

Or if fiction isn’t your thing, we can hook you up with some humorous non-fiction!

Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone you didn’t do your laundry— so go ahead and grab a book! If you want more suggestions, just drop by the library or contact us.
