I really relaxed today after a tense week preparing for closings and a trial. The week ended well and I am looking forward to a less busy week next week. I hope all is well with each of you.
Thank you to all who shared last week.
The "closet" romance readers edge out the non-closets with 13 admitting to hiding covers and 10 not. There were also a handful of "not romance readers" and those who only read inspirational romance (Bookishqueen) or buy the tasteful covers (Nikki).
As to playing computer games there were 20 of us who acknowledged playing some games online, downloaded, on iPod or on different gaming systems (xbox, Wii etc.). Mahjong was mentioned several times and Rose got my interest mentioning Nancy Drew games.

WEEK #101 Questions
Q1. I thought this was a good follow-up to the Cover question last week.
Mary P asks: Do you prefer models on the covers or abstract graphics?
- Do you want to see the models faces or not??
A: It depends on the story as I like a cover to show me something of the story or something to catch my interest more than male and female. Romance covers can be somewhat boring being the same old, same old. I would certainly rather see a model's face than other exposed body parts! Ha! I don't mind the sexy chests of men but I do like more than that. For example, Sara Humphreys covers feature a hunky guy and a shifter animal which is consistent with the story. :-)

Q2. My non-bookish Question this week: Do you prefer shower or bath?
A: I don't think I have ever been a bathtub fan even when it is a nice jacuzzi tub in a hotel. My daily routine is our small shower when I am not washing my hair and our bigger shower when I am washing my hair.
except it is outside so I wonder if I would be brave enough to not wear a bathing suit!

Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I draw from the suggestions I used during the month and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions. Thanks for sending in questions! We can always use fresh questions. I do have a group of questions from the same submitters so if you have a question don't be afraid to ask!
