Some thoughts on a book I am reading

Right now I am reading a book that is very simply entitled Books  it is by Larry McCurthry ofProduct Details

Lonesome Dove fame. It terrific a book about a life spent in books. Reading them, writing them and selling

them. Larry has long been a book hunter and dealer. He says he started hunting books in order to read them.

This book is well worth reading for anyone who loves books. I’m only a quarter in and already I would highly

recommend it. Anyway more later. BB

I don’t know about others, but this one is a softly masculine woman in her forties who can never seem

to get her nose out of a book.

Let me start by telling you a little bit about me and the aim of this blog.

As, previously stated I can never seem to get my nose out of a book

(this has been detrimental to my love life over the years, bookish people should

only be with bookish people or people who travel a lot)

I love the books of John Irving (especially The World According to Garp), the movies of Tarantino

and Frank Capra. I never wear black shoes. I think Kate Winslett is God’s gift to all of us dykes

(and guys as well!)

I read 2 or 3 books a week. This blog will be about lesbian themed books, but, not exclusively.

Sarah Schulman is to me a great underappreciated talent.

Soon, I post my first book review .

’til then

ciao
