Summer TV, I'd rather read a book!

Well here I am once again.
My DH and I are about to watch Hell's Kitchen. I am sure you have all heard of it or seen it. It's about a talented chef who has no ability to control his temper. He swears at his contestants, calls them names, and yells in their faces. Now that works for me.
Last night we watched some show about a neighborhood whose members are in a contest to win money. Last night they kicked out one of the neighborhoods best neighbors.
Or there is always Big Brother, where we can watch some spoiled, selfish, self centered people, learn how to perfect lies.
Have you seen any of the bachelor shows? I actually find myself feeling sorry for these fools.
One guy, twenty five girls, can these girls not do math?
The models are beating each other up. People are bouncing through obstacle courses that look potentially fatal to try and get through.
Now we don't have cable or a dish, I refuse to throw the money away. It's such a rip off. My DH put an antenna on the roof and we watch quite a number of free local channels. What makes me happy is looking at a tv guide and realizing I wouldn't watch any of the shows on cable if I could.
So tell me what else is there to do but read! Books never fail me, they take me away.
They teach me. They comfort me.
Give me a pleasant setting a good book and a pot of tea. Books are the best!

By the way I love this little faery! So cute!


  1. Amen. I'm going to suggest ILLUSIONS OF DESTINY. LOL. I really liked it. ;) Kiss Carson's second paperback is available at the WRP print store now. Guess I need one...

  2. I'm so with you, Mary. Give me a good book over TV anyday!

  3. I couldn't agree more, Mary. We don't have cable or Sky tv, in fact we rarely watch tv except for animal, countryside or wildlife programmes and I do love the occasional good film.

    Reality shows leave me absolutely cold I'm afraid. I know a lot of people love them but for me they are a complete waste of time, from what I've heard of them, and I have no inclination to watch one to see if I'm wrong!

  4. I'm a closet reality TV junkie. As a matter of fact the book due for one of my publishers is called Ineligible Bachelor - about a woman who sends in a picture of the guy next door and didn't read the fine print. He's the next contestant on "The World's Sexiest man." when he wins. Unfortunately the fine print also says she has to help pick out his date.

    Maybe while watching TV, this could be the good book you read!!

  5. I have eyes on all of your books. Some I already have, some I will have ASAP. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Here's another amen. I hate reality TV!!! In fact, the non-reality TV doesn't impress me either. I can get a lot more done when TV isn't an option.
