A Library Miscellany
A Library Miscellany - Claire Cock-Starkey

A small, slim tome that is exactly what it says it is: a miscellany of facts about libraries throughout history.  Some of it is nothing new to anyone who enjoys a good book about a book, but most of it was new and fairly interesting.  It had a few drive-my-husband-crazy moments of "listen to this!" but not so many that there was heavy sighing or eye-rolling going on.  

 

My personal favourites included the most overdue books and the example of rules at different major libraries in the world (I love that the Vatican Library has a bar).  I'm dying to know why Portugal's legal deposit laws require 11 copies of every book be submitted (as opposed to the more common 1-2 copies).

 

I'd have liked to have seen some illustrations of a few of the topics mentioned, but overall it's a nice little book, and one I'll likely refer to more than once when I feel the need to torture friends with book related trivia.

Licht en donker in balans
De Cock en de wortel van het kwaad - A.C. Baantjer

Ik verrast me hoe leuk ik dit vond. Normaal gesproken, vind ik misdaadverhalen niets voor mij. De moorden hier waren wel gruwelijk, en dat is normaal het deel waarover ik niet ermee zo blij ben. Maar Baantje, de schrijver van dit boek, heeft een goede benadering.

 

Dit boek bevat veel humor, maar ook een serieuze erkenning dat het pijn doen aan andere mensen fout is. Dat klinkt soms vreemd, zelfs naïef, maar in mijn ervaring zo veel misdaadboeken lijken het te vergeten. Ze maken een spel van dood en misdaad, en ik kan ervan niet geniet.

 

De Cock, de hoofdpersonage van het boek, is eigenlijk niet zo'n aardig persoon. Hij heeft oud en cynisch geworden en geniet een beetje te veel met mensen mee te sollen. De jongere politieagent, Vledder, met wie hij werkt, geeft dus een belangrijke balans aan de boek. Volgens mij, was het slim gedaan.

The Book Lovers' Miscellany
The Book Lovers' Miscellany - Claire Cock-Starkey

An excellent little book for what it is: a collection of facts about books and authors.  Oldest books in existence, description of the ISBN system, book towns, oddest titles of the year, and a code key to Penguin paperbacks are all examples of the interesting and sometimes amusing facts collected together in this small tome.  

 

I'm afraid MT learned rather more obscure facts about book than he'd have said he was  interested interested in, as I couldn't resist reading many of the sections out load.  My only disappointment was the distinctly UK focus; a small disappointment all things considered.

 

"Of all the things man can do or make here below,
by far the most momentous, wonderful, and
worthy are the things we call books."

NSFW-ish review of a funny erotica...menage?
From Top to Bottom - Kevin Klehr

THREE HEARTS--

Before Reading:

 

 

 

1 room, 3 tops and someone will be ENTERED

 

 

After Reading: It's all about the C's. Cum , Cocks and...Cakes?!

 

"You brought cake," I said. I tried not to let the look of horror show on my face.

"For afterward," Butch replied. "I baked it myself. Is there room in the fridge?"

Hadn't this guy heard of the definition of "eternity"? The time between you cum and they leave. Who ever heard of cake after sex?

 

Actual cakes.

 

 

 

Not an ass euphemism. Don't look at me like that, we both know you went there. ;) It's an erotica short, it's to be expected.

 

"But you're not thinking of topping him--you want him in your secret chamber."

"Secret chamber?"

"Man cave. Boy pussy. Man-gina. Lurve canal."

 

From Top to Bottom by Kevin Klehr was not what I expected it to be based on the blurb. I thought it was just going to be 3 cherries served on a platter. However it happened in this PWP, it was just going to happen.

 

 

Not so, totally not so.

 

Told from 1st POV in a British setting possibly(?), Tony is thirty, very close to his father (like they discuss their sex lives--his dad was actually my fave character--get to that later). Tony loves sex and isn't very discriminate. Plus, he's a bonafide top.

 

He gets told by a bottom, "it's just another way to feel cock". And Tony has a revelation. Why not try bottoming? So he places an ad online, "top curious about being a bottom, wants to meet likeminded tops." Two like-minded blokes respond: Butch, cake baking bear with a philosophical look on life and Ford, a top who has a boyfriend and just wants to get down to fucking.

 

I was in accord with Ford. Butch and Tony were very poetic, and the prose had a tendency to get purple-y.

 

I won't say who first pops their road to "nirvana", but the story gets straight down to sex.

 

 

*growls*

 

While erotic, it also was quirky. There were so many slang for ass. Soooooooooo many. Some good, some weird as fuck like "chew my gremlin". I have to save that in my all time quotes. Some I haven't even heard before. And this is coming from a Dallas Sketchman fangirl (RIP).

 

Who wouldn't laugh at:

 

"My gremlin feels satisfied"

 

or

 

"My gremlin is hungry. My gremlin's been watching soap opera and wants to feel the leading man."

 

The leading man, of course being:

 

 

 

 

While chewing over the gremlin ass talk, the author ups the ante with a spoken word session on the joys of gay sex. And it's hosted at an honest to goodness orgy.

 

Here I am thinking it's just going to be quick one and done type of deal. But no ma'am, Tony and Butch pound their way through the flesh "playground". The sex was described in a joyous, ritualistic tone, where it was an ode more than erotic.

 

For the smutsters: rimming, felching, snowballing, double penetration was had. (pssst...someone fibbed about being a backdoor virgin)

 

The story was different. And while weird euphemisms get thrown in the mix, Tony's dad added more hilariousness. He's very upfront. Tony explores the pleasures of being topped.

 

As does his dad.

 

 

 

 

 

His dad goes into detail how much he shot after discovering his G-spot. Truthfully, my favorite scenes included Tony's dad from getting a colonic, to his pegging joy. I was fully there for Dad, despite the weirdness.

 

There was a message with this erotica. I think I know what the author was going for and I enjoyed that. The story was memorable more to me for the odd words and descriptions, not so much for the erotic bit. Which is the point of PWP for me.

 

 

The story ends at an odd place. Two of the original three tops form a friendship. A crush isn't returned. I wouldn't say it was faptastic. Weird and poetic mainly.

 

But hey at least there was cake?

 

 

 

Am I right?
