And is there a problem you guys have with Harlequin novels? :lol: :lol: :lol:
Absolutely no problem here. I think Mills and Boon (sp?) has been doing society a much-needed public service for decades. Say what you will, there will always be room in my world for escapist romantic fantasy. 8) :D
Sniff, Sniff! Are you forgetting the one and only (very pinkly dressed and accessorised!) Barbara Cartland? She was so good with her formula and prolific, I think she left something like 700 or 900 books to be published after her death? (If I remember correctly, she died in her 90s and possibly later, and was dictating text to her secretary up until then!)

Yeah. But her books cost more. I not only want escapist fantasy. I want cheap escapist fantasy. :lol: :lol:

What's a prat? A controlling, egocentric, alpha male? :roll: :lol:
No :D A prat is an idiot.
According to the online dictionary at princeton.edu, prat is, "buttocks: the fleshy part of the human body that you sit on" Also known as arse (or pain therein?) So yeah. Idiot works, too. :lol: :lol:

Harlequins are essential to a young adult's education. You get to learn phrases such as "her bosom heaved" or "'You will never get me, Tristan!' she cried". Now that's going to enrich Creative Writing courses.

I hate Harlequin, in the sense that I never buy it! (Russian novels, South American writers and literature classics of Anglo-Saxon origin are far more interesting to me)... Harlequin - bleah!

I used to read such novels in an hour or so...

I watch telenovellas at times - does this count?

Absolutely! I've never seen such unrealistic drivel. That's gotta count for something. :lol: :lol:
You should see the Korean dramas that are imported and the latest rage in Japan- the heroine is crying every 5 minutes. :roll:

They're hilarious good fun. I watch the Mexican ones that are totally spoken in Spanish. So I catch a word here and there, but for the most part have no clue what they're actually saying.

The acting is so predictable and overblown, even I know what's going on the whole time. It's a hoot to watch. :lol: :lol: 8)

:? At best, you could miss for six weeks and still know what is going on.

At worst, you could miss five seasons, an still know what is going on/what went on :? :lol:
