I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
...it's just such a cliche.
And honestly: How many investigative reporter are out there??? If you read any newspapers, you have to come to the conclusion: not so many.
The quality is appalling in most cases.
And this whole female tenacious clever reporter beauty is just so, cliched and, well, fantastical. And how reporter always do the job that the uninterested and incapable police cannot do...yes, sure.
Thinking of all kinds of law enforcement people out there I am insulted.
