Hey, remember the 30 Days of Books meme that I was participating in? Yeah, me neither.
Next up: Day 20: Favorite Romance Book
Romance? Romance? Hrmmm… if you’ve spent any time reading about the books I review and discuss, you can tell that romances aren’t very high on my list.
You’ll have to ask The Beloved if I qualify as a romantic guy… I think so – though I surely don’t think of myself as a romance novel sort of romantic guy. It’s been many years since I might have tried to sport a Fabio-esque hairdo and being so pale, it’s a bad idea for me to run around bare-chested.
However, I’d like to think that under the proper circumstances I’d be able to buckle a pretty good swash, which is a roundabout way for a lead-in to my choice: The Princess Bride by William Goldman.
Ahhh Buttercup, Westley, Humperdink, Inigo and all of them. The book is smart, funny and truly endearing. Where else is there a better example of finding true love? True. Love.
