Last year I set out to read 100 books, but I ran out of time and only read 75. So this year, I will read one hundred books. And you're my witness :) The only thing stopping me this year is 9 seasons' worth of Seinfeld episodes- wish me luck!

71. no pants night continues
the excitement never stops here at mi casa. no-pants night continues on. i have finished off the last of another book this evening: Vision in White by Nora Roberts. Let me just say that was a whole lot of fluff in a whole lot of large-fonted, big-margined pages..... but it works. the end result made me smile, which i suppose is the point of reading these fluffy nora roberts novels. i am dissapointed to have finally read one of her books and realized it was so shitty, though. she produces a lot of books (according to wikipedia, over 165) she has also been in the number one bestseller slot for over 100 weeks combined with all of these books. why? this writing is crappy (no offense, nora, i am ultimately impressed with your skills- i am, after all, the one sitting at home alone on a friday night blogging about your book rather than writing my own....) and the sex scenes aka the entire reason to read one of these shitty romance novels are not good at all. they are super fake and there arent' enough details to result in lady wood, which is what we all want from these graphic and corny descriptions of loooovvvve making. so frankly, i just don't get it. but i can now say that i have read one of these nora roberts stories. and next time, i will pick up a harlequin blaze novel instead. they are really graphic and corny and there are more of these looovvvee scenes than there are of the will they- won't they? drama. VERY NICE! GREAT SUCCESS! let me sum up my no-pants night ramblings:
