'You're in Bangor, Maine? Wow. My very first gig out of town (Long Island, New York) with Vanilla Fudge, when we were called The Pigeons, was in Bangor, Maine (laughing).'

A few of 2012's best reads

People read for different reasons. Some read to learn, while others read to escape; some read to be challenged, others simply to be entertained.

I read for all of these reasons.

So there's a little bit of everything in this list of my 2012 favorites; if nothing else, I feel confident in saying that readers from across the spectrum will find something to like here.

Romance with a capital R'

Why do you suppose grown women like Romance so much? I'm not talking about coming home to take-out and candles. I'm talking about Romance with a capital 'R,' a genre near and dear to my heart. In the name of all that's trashy, why do we care about Twilight?' How come Nora Roberts is a billionaire by now, and I just brought home the new version of Footloose' for my Friday night viewing? I teach high school I'm not in high school.

My husband rolls his eyes at me whenever he spies me reading a cheap paperback romance novel. 'You teach Shakespeare. How can you possibly be reading a book called Storm Over Paradise?'' It doesn't make sense to him, a literary snob reading Harlequins in her spare time, analyzing whether the stud on the cover matches the histrionic hero inside the book. What sort of sensible woman makes time for such frivolity?

Summer (blockbuster) reading

5 examples of "The book was better"

One can never have too many recommendations when it comes to books. It's always nice to have a few recommendations to work from when you're picking out your next beach read. However, there are plenty of books out there that may never catch your attention because you think you already know the story.

You saw the movie, you see.

But sometimes, seeing the movie is no indication of the quality of the book. Sometimes, the story gets altered or rewritten or occasionally outright ignored. Occasionally, the only resemblance between the two will be a title.

Here are five books that warrant your attention this summer, along with the five movie versions of said books that are inferior to their source material. This is not to say that these films are all bad - though many of them certainly are that - so much as that the books that inspired them are so very much better.
