I just received an email from the Chapters irewards program saying they had some book recommendations picked personally for me.
I was so excited! To say I love books is like saying the Pope is Catholic - it goes without saying. It's a fact.
I'm a voracious reader. When I don't have anything to read, in desperation I will read the backs of cereal boxes and - when it's an extremely serious situation - I'll read the sports section. When my husband sees this, he'll mutter, 'uh oh' and veer away from me because he knows I'm irritable because I don't have any reading material.
So I was excited by the email. I thought happily about all the good recommendations about best sellers or award winning books I was about to discover.
I opened the email to find they had recommended three books. Strangely enough, they were all pre-readers. That's right, children's books. All three. Mercer Mayer, people.
And hey, I have nothing against Mercer Mayer. I used to enjoy his books very much. When I was three years old!
The books were chosen based on my recent purchases.
Do you suppose my life revolves around my children too much? Hmmmm. The last movie I saw was 'Puss in Boots'.
Clearly I need to get out more! I need to buy adult books and watch adult movies. I mean...grown up movies. Movies that adults like. You know what I mean!
Listen, irewards people. I have a life! I think.
