We do, but I usually try to read something that furthers my knowledge on a subject or is thought provoking in some way. It is all entertainment to me, or I would stop reading. I do have reads I consider guilty pleasures, like the one listed below. Perhaps using the word guilty is the culprit, because I rarely feel guilty of any reading choice I make. There are simply some books that require less brain power than others.

sorry, pet peeve of mine. why should any reading choice be considered a guilty pleasure? don't we all deserve to read whatever strikes our fancy? it is after all a leisure activity.

so yes i choose books for fun and entertainment--rarely, for educational or name dropping value.

JMHO YMMV

Longbourn - Jo Baker

I have been sick all week and decided to treat myself to some Jane Austen silliness. It was a fast read, but it was cleverly written.

"my favorite Mississippi author, Larry Brown"

I would have guessed Barry Hannah instead of L. Brown. Darker, and crazier. Although Brown certainly had no shortage of tormented characters. RIP, both of them. And Willie M. too.

The Rabbit Factory by my favorite Mississippi author, Larry Brown. His sense of people and place is masterful.

Fallen Beauty by Erika Robuck. A great Jazz Age novel.
