Kim here. Can it be a magazine? I love reading People, Star etc on BC Ferries. It is the only time I read them and I love them on the ferry. I also like unauthorized bios. The Kitty Kelley one on Oprah was good.
They call Kelley “Colonoscopist to the stars”. I love that.
(Angela here) I love Kim’s answer. Nothing like a little celebrity gossip to make us smile.
My pick is any recent title by Nora Roberts. She’s a romance and suspense writer who has written an amazing number of books. She has millions of copies in print and fans around the world but somehow I find reading her books a guilty pleasure. Maybe it’s because they’re stories you can lose yourself in without expending a lot of mental energy. The stories are clever, well researched and intelligent but the way Ms. Roberts tells them makes these books an easy read. The trick is to pick up her recent works. Many of her early titles were published by Harlequin and they are not as engaging. Of course, given her success, Harlequin is republishing her early work so it can be tricky sometimes to know what’s truly new.
I’ve got the latest
(Peg here) I’ll often browse old Ikea catalogues. I know. It’s weird. I used to have a copy of every single one from the time Ikea came to Canada, but I recently threw them out in a cleaning frenzy. Right now, I only have two or three in the house. Without one lying around somewhere, I feel empty inside.
