Chick Lit

To be honest, I don’t know what Chick Lit is; but that’s a poultry excuse!

As “Amazon Prime” subscribers – my wife’s idea – I get a monthly invite to download one of eight new ebooks – their “editor’s choices” – for free (well, included in the subscription cost, to be fair).

Almost without fail, these titles will be authored by women. Although disproportionately represented, I don’t have a problem with that. What does bother me is the subjects of these chosen novels – they all seem depressingly similar.

Even though a download of one would cost me no more other than a bit of storage space on my device or in the cloud, it’s pointless. I’m just not interested enough in the dreary synopses to want to try one out.

I’ve looked to see if there’s a setting I can change, or some means of feedback, but I can find none.
