Mr. Bug and I went to the discount book store after a traumatic tax session this afternoon. One section that’s always good for a laugh is the “Romance Fantasy” aisle, which anyone else would call “Girl Porn.” This is not a genre known for it’s subtlety, as I demonstrate by Exhibit A at the Right.
Example: “Her nipples grieved for his touch.”
Honey. If you have bereaved nipples, you got bigger problems than your sex life.
Anyhoo, here’s what entertained me so much today: A common practice is to put quotes praising a book on the jacket cover. Here’s the glowing recommendation of a book called “Border Lair”:
“This was an entertaining work of fiction that lacked grammatical errors and contained hot sex.”
Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha. Now THAT‘s a recommendation!
And yes, I did buy it for $2.99. How could I not? So far, it is clearly something Leonard Pinth-Garnell would love.
Also: if you want some additional fun weekend WTFery, check out the Smart Bitches, Trashy Books cover reviews. Very funny!
EDITED 4/12 TO ADD: WTF Amazon??? Amazon apparently is now no longer allowing LGBT books (fiction or non-fiction) to show in sales rankings, as well as some disability books.
