Dirty Little Reading Secret


Not my own secret - lifted from Post


Have you ever heard of the Post Secret website? It’s a website where people send in postcards confessing their secrets. Some are funny, some gross, some just heartbreaking, but it’s an interesting concept – a public, but anonymous, place to get things off your chest.

Well, they say that confession is good for the soul, so I’m going to post my secret right here, for all of you readers.

I like to read cheesey crime novels.

There, I’ve said it, and I feel better already. I know that I profess to be a “discriminating reader”, and most of the time I am. But sometimes I just can’t control myself, and I have to read Michael Connelly, or Dennis Lehane. Once I even sank to reading Ann Rule. But – I swear – I’ve never touched a Janet Evanovich!!

And yes, the reason I’m writing this post is that I’m in the middle of a Michael Connelly binge and don’t have a “better” book to blog about.

Do you have a deep, dark secret about your reading habits that you’d like to share? Go ahead – you’re among friends!


  1. I don’t keep dirty secrets – im completely upfront. I enjoy Dan Brown. I love the Twilight series. I cried in the last Harry Potter novel. Sometimes I stand in front of my book case and just stroke their spines lovingly. I am officially a dag.

    • Yay! Stand up and be proud!

  2. Thanks for the link, im really enjoying this

  3. Cheesy crime novels rock! Big fan of Mary Higgins Clark 🙂

    Used to visit PostSecret regularly a couple of years ago, but haven’t visited for a while…

    • Cookie, we should start a support group! 🙂
