A book is a version of the world. If you do not like it, ignore it; or offer your own version in return. ~Salman Rushdie

Won't you join me in championing free speech this week by observing Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read. Do it anyway you want, I don't care: Take a book to lunch. Or dress it up in stockings and stilettos--then fuck it silly or jerk off and cum all over it. But most of all, hold it to your heart and keep it safe. Great Book Quotes

  • To be a book-collector is to combine the worst characteristics of a dope fiend with those of a miser. ~Robertson Davies

***Researching and putting all of the info together for this entry, I've had tears in my eyes more than once; fell in love with power of words--over and again; was struck heart-deep by the weight of truth which those who write always bare; and fell in love with my beautiful country all over again. If you even find your way to one of those things... I will be profoundly humbled.

Angela's Room

Angela St. Lawrence is the PhoneSex Operator of choice for the thinking man. While she's been called many things by her clients ("The way she riffs on matters sexual and otherwise, she is my white Billie Holiday" & "A 21st century Anais Nin with just a touch of Machiavelli."), mostly she just likes to be called Angela. Make sure you visit her award winning website -- and her blog, Zen Fetish.
