Okay, a caveat: I generally read nonfiction and when I read fiction it’s generally “hard” science fiction or fantasy/horror. When I watch tv it’s “Jeopardy!,” westerns, horror, SF, etc…
My name is Surly Mermaid and I’m an Amish fiction addict. In my defense, the cool librarian with the afro who reads zombie fiction and can quote from “Dexter” is hooked as well.
Apparently dealers… I mean publishers have been pushing… uh, publishing and selling this stuff for a while. As with other trends, I’m a day late and a dollar short. Hubby laughs about my new obsession and I joke along with him:
Me: “Honey! This book is really sad! Hannah Rachel just burnt a pie and now her horse and buggy are broken down by the side of the road! All of this after the barn fire and her Daed getting her shunned by the bishops. Is there no justice for this apron-clad, female Job!??!?!!?”
Hubby, looking over from his anime tv show or his fantasy novel: “Uh… next thing you know she’ll be showing her ankle to some Yoder fellow.”
Me, grinning: “She already has!”
Out yourselves, fellow Plain-philes!!! :grouphug:
