Happy Thursday dear friends….hope your having a great week and are enjoying this fall weather. I am loving everything about this time of year…
Last night I spent the evening making pumpkin bread and my house smelled so yummy, the mixes of cinnamon and nutmeg and pumpkin spice filling the house was a aroma to behold. Anyway, I could go on about that and the smells of cooking are a wonderful simple pleasure, but today the one I am really enjoying now is reading.
This is my favorite…Amish Fiction, next to my bible and bible study books, this is what I enjoying reading the most. These stories are full of family, love, faith. Such strong family values. Where life slows down and the real things in life that matter are tended to.
“If you think all romance novels have covers displaying a shirtless Fabio clone embracing a woman with heaving bosoms and are filled with torrid sex scenes, think again. The hottest trend right now in the romance genre is the “Amish inspirational,” which are books with chastely dressed women on the front and no sex inside. Yep, that’s right, kissing is about as racy as it gets in an Amish inspirational. But, for many readers, that’s very appealing. As a recent article in USA Today says, “In our sex-soaked society, nothing seems to inflame the imagination quite like the chaste.””
So what is your simple pleasure today? Check out what others are saying, by stopping in at Simple Pleasures. Join Dayle (our wonderful hostess) @ A Collection of This and That.
