What is a Guilty Pleasure?

Hi and welcome to my new blog.  Like my profile says I’m a writer and I work as a reference librarian in a public library.  I decided to write about guilty pleasures because, well, I have a lot of them.  Heck, I didn’t want to run out of things to talk about by the end of summer.  So what is a guilty pleasure?  Being a good reference librarian Google and I are on a first name basis.  Just kidding ALA(American Library Association).  Anyway here’s what Wikipedia has to say about guilty pleasures,

A guilty pleasure is something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. The “guilt” involved is sometimes simply fear of others discovering one’s lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes. Fashion, video games, music, movies, and junk food can be examples of guilty pleasures.

So along with books, TV shows, movies and food I’ll be talking about some of my other guilty pleasures like staying up late along with the accompanying sleeping in.  Just two of my favorite guilty pleasures.

What’s your favorite guilty pleasure?
