While I was sitting by the pool in Hawaii, I took the cover off my hardcover copy of The Heart of Betrayal because I didn’t want anyone to see me reading fiction aimed at 12-17 year olds. My godmother has special book covers made out of patterned-fabric to put her books inside – she says it’s to protect them, but on another level, I’d say it’s because she doesn’t want anyone to know she’s reading Harlequin romance novels. When was the last time you told someone about what you were reading? When was the last time somebody even cared? We ask each other what TV shows we’re watching all the time – but books hardly ever come up in conversation.
