Not So Guilty Pleasures

I have a few guilty pleasures — a few children’s cartoons I like watching, comic books, superheroes, and of course cheesy science fiction.  Sometimes I even feel like philosophy is a bit of a guilty pleasure.  My other guilty pleasures sometimes involve feeling smugly superior to others.  I try not to embrace that one.

I also have some pleasures that I don’t feel guilty about.  For instance, I like big books.  Big leather bound books.  Big leather bound books with cover engravings, fabric start pages, ribbon book marks, and classic contents.  I like great novels with stylish illustrations, which is why I’m super excited about Marissa’s gift to me for my birthday — Moby Dick bound in leather, whale engraved on the front, illustrations through the text.  I can’t wait to read it again.
