Those are some great book reviews! Seriously. It's hard to find short, pithy and to-the-point along with witty and eloquent. Personally, I'm all about this bodice-ripper masquerading as history lesson, but that may just be my mid-life-crisis talking.

You may not thank me two years from now when you emerge from the 16th century spouting Renaissance poetry, speaking bits of six languages and wondering where all the lute-playing men on horseback are.

I came here to say something intelligent but suddenly feel jaw-droppingly dull. So I'll just do a few fist-pumps and WOO-WOO-WOOs and maybe throw in a cabbage patch and call it an evening. You rock, SK -- great book(s) review.

Suburban Kamikaze

No, no, you can't go all warm and fuzzy on me now. I've got like 2,000 people dropping in for cocktails and I am running low on cocktail weenies.

Open that antiquated jar of maraschino cherries in the back of your bar and see who can tie the best knot in a cherry stem with his tongue. They won't even notice there's no food if the cocktails are strong.

Perfect. Almost everyone at NPR can do that trick. Something to do with their microphone training.

The only slutty biography I've read is Ednay St. Vincent Millay's (Savage Beauty by Nancy Milford).

But I hear Keith Richards has got it going on.

Some book reviews for women without a Valentine...http://therumpus.net/2011/02/funny-women-45-one-handed-reading/

That is taking prose and eros to a whole new level. Now I will probably spend the rest of the evening flirting with my bookshelves.

First BedBugs and Now BedBooks? (This calls for another tourist tax.) Also, I'm pretty sure that site is illegal in Florida. We need to hold on to that #10 ranking in education and stuff.

And lastly, there is a health concern. Taking books to bed is just too risky. I've heard that some BTDs are TV and internet resistant. This is serious people. If you must sleep with a book, at least make sure it keeps its jacket on!

Not sure if this is good or bad, but I am familiar with a couple of those titles! I have to say though that Nicholson Baker has me beat, the lewdness of his writing was more fantasy than I could handle.

Suburban Kamikaze

I only read him for the articles. Also the nouns, verbs, prepositions, pronouns etc.
