Book Blogger Woes (6)



I am a huge fan of First World Problems. I'll be the first person to scroll through their Twitter and laugh out loud to myself, thinking "yes. I DO THAT. In ALL of life." And honestly, guys? I do it in blogging, too. A LOT. I get all uppity about the most ridiculous things. Thus, Book Blogger Woes was born. Every so often, I'll be sharing a different blogger pain pertaining to all of the sulking... but in a comical way.

(Please tell me I'm not the only one who feels these things. You just have to. I can't be the only one.)

You take a seat on the bus/train/carpool and you can't wait to continue that steamy scene you dove into on your lunch break at your desk. YAY for public transportation allowing you to travel and read at the same time. Too bad the steamy scene is within a steamy book contained by a steamy cover. There's a bit too much cleavage and a bit too much man nipple up there. 
And now people are starting to give you the side eye. 
In the words of Joey Tribbiani,
"YOU GOT PORN."

  1. Ba ha ha -- this is EXACTLY why I read Fifty Shades of Grey at home. I had another book on the go to read in public, but that one did not leave the house. I didn't want people to give me the Joey Tribbiani look ;)

  2. Ha! My mum likes steamy romances (the ones with too much cleavage and a bit too much man nipple up there covers) and when someone comes over she'll put it away in a drawer.

    Extra points for the Friends refernce and that Joey GIF. Yeah baby! ;D

  4. HAHAHA yes. I also feel like if the cover is uber GIRLY I get the stank eye. Or maybe people just think I'm 15 and not 27. Yep probably.

  5. And this is exactly the reason why I don't read books with steamy covers--- well, that or the fact that I get enjoyment out of watching others squirm at what I'm reading. Yeah, that could be it too.

  6. Ahaha, yes. It's a problem. I sometimes try to cover the *most* inappropriate parts with the way I hold my book, but mostly, I just don't really care anymore. People can get over themselves, LOL.

    Also, A++ for using a Joey GIF. I totally want to watch TOW Rachel's Book now.

  8. YES! And hooray for e-readers who go around this particular problem :) I'm so much more comfortable reading my historical romances on the train now!

  9. I guess that's the beauty of eReaders! Though I've never really been ashamed by a cover ... I work in a library so I see a LOT of different kinds of books coming in and going out!

  10. This makes me laugh so hard because this JUST happened to me this week! I was reading my first Victoria Dahl book (holy God btw) and I was giving everyone the shifty eye within a 20-foot radius to make sure they couldn't see what I was reading.

  11. LOLOLOL. I guess this never happens to me because I don't take public transportation because we don't have it here, also all of my potentially embarrassing stuff lives inside my Kindle! But yes, LOL, I can imagine. :-)
