Books/Things I thought I Would Hate

A Listmania! list by K. McGee "KayJay" (Beautiful Idaho, United States)
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "I used to consider such books as "beneath me" due to an unfortunate English teacher I had in highschool who indoctrinated us with examples of books that were "trash" and books that were worthy. Because of her, I have a lot of missed reading to make up for. These are all books outside the genres I normally enjoy but I ended up liking them despite myself. My best advice? Try something new because you never know what you're missing out on until you do."
Forbidden Pleasure (Bound Hearts, Book 8)
1.  Forbidden Pleasure (Bound Hearts, Book 8) by Lora Leigh
The list author says:
  "Just plain entertaining. Not for the ultra-conservative crowd."

I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie
2.  I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie by Pamela DesBarres
The list author says:
  "I thought I would have absolutely nothing in common with the author and wouldn't like her at all but I ended up thinking she'd be a fun friend to hang out with (occasionally) and the kind of pal you could call at 2am to lament your love life with."

My Life
3.  My Life by Bill Clinton

The Battle of Mogadishu: Firsthand Accounts from the Men of Task Force Ranger
4.  The Battle of Mogadishu: Firsthand Accounts from the Men of Task Force Ranger by Matt Eversmann
The list author says:
  "I really thought this would compare unfavorably to Mark Bowden's "Black Hawk Down" or that it would just be a "rehash" of that book but I'd DEFINITELY recommend reading them both to get different points of view on this subject."

The Wolf and the Dove
5.  The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
The list author says:
  "Before there was Lora Leigh, Johanna Lindsey and other best selling romance writers, there was Kathleen E Woodiwiss. Despite the age of this book (it was first published in 1974), it's still appealing today. If you like Johanna Lindsey, I'm betting you'll like this book."

The Bridges of Madison County
8.  The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller
The list author says:
  "I absolutely thought I would be disgusted by a book about adultery but I ended up reading it in one sitting. It didn't end up being a "keeper" (a book worthy of a spot on my bookshelves) but I don't regret reading it. Just don't expect me to watch the movie...."

  "Thought I'd have no use for an e-reader cause most of what I read doesn't make it to my keeper shelves and I like to sell or donate.

I WRONG about Kindle!  LOVE IT! And I'm okay with the fact that I don't really "own" what's on my Kindle because life is short and Kindle allows me to have access to what I want, when I want it."
