Books to the Sky

Laid Off

Posted on: January 10, 2009

Via Jezebel, even fictional Wall Street tycoons and i-bankers are getting the kiss-off from the romance genre.   I’m picturing the BookWorld replete with these strapping stockbrokers, begging for D-list character roles in their pinstriped Armani suits.  These days, it’s tough to be a gangsta.

The article claims that rugby players are the next Big Thing, but in times of financial hardship, I think the hero of the hour should be obvious.  Pirates!  Steal from the rich and ravish the maidens!  Ahoy!

No, this is no way a meager offering instead of the recap I should have been working on over winter break.  I swear, I will get through Anita Blake if the nipples of steel kill me!   Knowing JC, it’s not a wholly implausible fate.

Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.
--Arnold Lobel

From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.
--Groucho Marx
