Reading on Planes
In this day and age, loads of us have ereaders. It makes reading whatever your flavor of book private, and easily toteable. Despite those perks, I thought I would never be a convert to the digital book, and boy was I wrong! I’m really glad I was, honestly. I almost never read paper books anymore. Of the few exceptions, I do carry one whenever I fly just to avoid the whole need to turn off electronic devices during takeoff and landing. It’s valuable reading time! I don’t want to miss out on that. This trip was so hectic I forgot to bring one with me, so I only had my ereader with me. No big deal.
During the take-off my neighbor and I chatted a little. The usual stuff, if Texas or Florida was home, was I traveling for fun or work, the weather and the number of babies on the flight. As soon as we were in the air I popped out my ereader and started digging into the latest Cynthia Eden book, Alpha One. If you’ve never read her, all of her books are hot with a dark and gritty edge I love.
Of course right as the heroine is wearing all of a towel and something super hot and steamy is about to happen my neighbor leans over and says something about, “thank goodness for the Blood of Christ.”
This has to go down as one of the most awkward plane moments ever. Right up there with the one time when I tripped, grabbed a guy’s toupee and fell face first in the aisle of the plane. Yes, that happened. I can’t make this stuff up.
Anyways, I made some polite comment to the lady and hunkered down in my seat to continue reading the smutty bits while she flipped through her Bible. I’d been so wrapped up in my book that I hadn’t even noticed her bring out the worn volume. At least she never asked me what I was reading. There are things to be thankful for.
Reading has changed a lot since I picked up an ereader and I think it’s for the best. I love my nekkid man chest covers and the hot women who pose with them, but not everyone is. I think some of my favorite covers would make the average person blush, so I guess I’m not the only one glad for a little digital privacy!
What’s your favorite, racy book cover? Would you be okay showing it off to everyone?
It can never be said that Sidney Bristol has had a ‘normal’ life. She is a recovering roller derby queen, former missionary, and tattoo addict. She grew up in a motor-home on the US highways (with an occasional jaunt into Canada and Mexico), traveling the rodeo circuit with her parents. Sidney has lived abroad in both Russia and Thailand, working with children and teenagers. She now lives in Texas where she splits her time between a job she loves, writing, reading and belly dancing.
The last thing Christine wants to do is another favor for her sister, but Lucy always gets what she wants. This time it’s Chris playing sub to a demanding Dom. Their relationship begins with a power exchange and progresses to time spent between the sheets. Now emotions are getting complicated and the Dom isn’t just a hunky guy in black.
Daniel’s expectations are turned upside down when he meets Chris. She’s more than a well-trained submissive. She’s a woman with a body he wants to memorize. He’s willing to spend as much time as it takes to learn her, because she might be his match and his muse. He’ll make her come so hard he’s imprinted on every inch, and then he’ll offer her the most precious thing he can, himself.
