The book less read


Hey! Who are you calling a boggart?

See the lizard costume? Well, be afraid, all of you short, pudgy American millionaires wearing home-made Sultan costumes. I'm one bad-ass character, and I think for myself.

For example, I don't have to read what everyone else is reading. I can read something different. Something that's not on the best-seller list. Something that doesn't have the Internet ablaze with speculation and critical insight.

So enjoy HP&tHBP, all of you ... hell, whom am I kidding ... no one is reading this ... you're all off reading that book ... including That Stud Muffin I Married, who selfishly brought the book with him on his business trips even when he works on the plane and won't have time to read it, anyway.

Not that I mind, really. You know, there are other books, people. And since TSMIM is kind of a slow reader, I'll be polishing off quite a few in the next week or so.

  2. You know what a remoreseless fad whore I am. Hell, even TFBIM read the book. She finished last night and came to bed, sobbing.*

    This is astonishing for two reasons: one, this is the first book she has read (she normally does the audio book thing) since reading that _Scarlett_ abomination over a decade ago and, two, she actually stayed up late to finish it.

    Where was I going with this?

    P.S. I am reading Pearls, Girls and Monty Bodkin.

    *"Just like on our wedding night" Biddy-BUMP! Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week.

  3. I don't know. But I won't tell That Stud Muffin I Married that his girlfriend isn't a reader. He would be so disappointed.

    But actually, why should I protect his feelings? He's only on page 332. This could take days.
