Weekends with the Queen

One of my favorite things to do is read. For many years I didn't read at all, then one day my Mother in law gave me a book to read and I think I had my head buried in a book for about two years straight. My favorite books to read are romance novels the cheesier and steamier the better. Now I know that the world, and Utah especially, has gone crazy for Twilight, but I have absolutely no desire in the world to read that book. I know it's weird, but it holds absolutely no appeal to me. I don't really get why grown women are so crazy for this book. Maybe it is because my loyalties lye with another. The Queen of Romance Nora Roberts. Nora has written 150+ books and I have read and own most of them. I've had the opportunity to meet her twice, the first was in NYC in 2001 and then in 2003 I traveled cross country to meet her again. Because of her I became friends with a really great group of ladies.

Me and Nora 2003 outside of Turn the Page bookstore in MD ( I can't believe I wore my hair like that)

My and the ladies of The Wreck Room.

So this weekend (and the next 3) as all of you Twilight-ers wait in anticipation of the video release. I will be cozying up on my couch and torturing Jon by making him watch the first of 4 Lifetime movies based on Nora's books. First up Northern Lights.
