Book Reviews?

I've been asked by Emily Sears to review a book she absolutely hated so that I can give it the proper verbal thrashing it deserves and perhaps cause the writers to examine their ability to actually write a proper book, then ritualistically killing themselves so that they can appease the angry writing gods.

I'm also in the midst of two different books (both non-fiction though, oddly enough):

 

I have the feeling it's giving me nightmares. Everything I've read about different neurological disorders have become my worst nightmare and something that makes me willing to exercise, in the hopes that making the blood speed around my body will stave off dementia or Korsikovs.

I'm also reading:

 

I am completely and utterly fascinated by Jenna Jameson. This woman created the idea of the "Porn Star." She was able to turn a medium that is looked down upon and created her own dynasty. Whatever you think about porn, you have to admire that.

I'm a little … unsure of how the book will be though. One of the introduction pages mentions that some of the names of been changed and (I think) a few of the movies she's made (under various titles) have been amalgamated into one movie. I don't completely understand what that means but it seems fairly dishonest for an autobiography.

I mean, I might as well write my autobiography and just make up stories, like that time I saved Big Bird from being crushed by a train.

True story.

… okay, no it's not.

ANYWAY, this long ass post was so that I could ask you, are there any books out there that you want me to review? Please keep in mind that even if you suggest it, I might not read it. Or if I start to read it and it makes me want to swallow my own tongue in anger, I may choose to stop reading it.

Though with that last scenario, I'd still rip it apart online.

If you have the feeling the book will make my eyes want to bleed, please don't recommend it. My eyes are bad enough already; I don't need to become a Bond villain.

    Hee! I l*heart* you, lostie.
    The Man…is a good book. The stories are so interesting, and yes, sad sometimes. Do you remember Syphillis Georgia from House? There's a story almost exactly like hers in there.
    Um, you wanna review War & Peace for me? I'm finding it tough going.

    YES! I read it and thought, "Damn, David Shore must pull his stories from this book!" There was another one too that was really familiar. Now I can't remember which is was. Hm.
    War & Peace? I've been meaning to read it. Eh, why not? But it won't be for a little while (I have 4 or 5 books on hand that I really need to read first) but I'll get to it. Otherwise, I could review the Cliff Notes version. 🙂

    Was it the guy with Korsikov's (sp)? I seem to remember a clinic patient who had that.

    Maybe it was the korikov's but a different one from the severe amnesia or the loss of short term memory. I should really have made notes while I was reading.

  5. 😀 ha!!! "Everything I've read about different neurological disorders have become my worst nightmare and something that makes me willing to exercise, in the hopes that making the blood speed around my body will stave off dementia or Korsikovs." Nicely examined and worded 🙂

    Thank you! I have to find a poster of that book cover and hang it in front of my bed so I can't make anything an excuse not to exercise!

  7. Exercise? Gosh, I'm not really sure what that means– need to consult dictionary.com
