I'm a total book junkie. In a post on Murder She Writes this morning, that was exactly the topic of discussion: Bookaholics. One of Jennifer Lyons's clues that you might share this addiction is whether you can meet your friends for lunch and not talk about books.
I have a lot of reading peers. I'm not sure any of the local ones are as addicted as I am, but I certainly have no shortage of folks I can talk books with. And I have a hard time, a really hard time, not talking books.
It's always funny to meet a new bookaholic, though. Our friend had a friend visiting from out of town, so we all got together at their house for dinner one evening. Three of us ended up in the kitchen talking about books when the topic of romance came up. The girl mentioned a funny romance that she'd read recently, but couldn't remember the author's name. After talking a bit, we discovered that I had recently read the same book! Of course our other friend then had to check it out herself. What was it? Rachel Gibson's Not Another Bad Date.
And that reminds me, Avon's Romance Blog is running a "Here's to Hockey Hunks" sweepstakes to go along with Gibson's most recent release Nothing But Trouble. For details on how to enter, check here.
