I admit I sometimes feel embarrassed if I am reading something like my current read "Cowboy Crazy" (A Romance, with a Rodeo star as the male lead, and someone asks, "What are you reading?" only to find that it's not 'highbrow fiction' (which admittedly I have a hard time getting into for my 'comfort food' reading). I usually mumble, "Oh, some romance novel".

I do read a lot of favorite classics (re-read even), because they are so widely free and available, and don't blush when I say those.
