This is a bit off topic...but I'm currently working on a novel titled "Momma, why is it chunky when I pee?"

It's heavily layered...it does not rely solely on it's kick ass title.

I am even more annoyed by this than I was before,

The Blind Side by Michael Lewis

It's supposed to be a book about the evolution of the left tackle position in football. It didn't really turn out to be that, but it was a decent book, nonetheless.

I might be sorry I asked this question, but ....

How does a book about playing left tackle in the National Football League morph into smething else?

Ok I've searched through a few pages of this thread AND used the search function and have yet to see anyone mention it.

I've just finished Vince Flynn's latest called Act of Treason. It's #8 in his series primarily on the character of Mitch Rapp, a CIA assasin/badass. I recommend the entire series to anyone who likes Tom Clancy/Spy novels. They are quick and fun to read.

I just finished Shake Hands With the Devil. This book makes it embarassing to be an American where Rwanda was concerned. How appalling how our government lied and wouldn't help over there after repeated beggings from Dallaire and others, then had the gall to step up and take credit for aiding in stopping the genocide.

There is a line in this book that said a US official told Dallaire the US didn't think it was worth risking American lives over and the way they figured it, was that it would take 85,000 Rwandan lives to equal that of one American soldier.

Incredibly sad.

My top ten books

Top 10 Books about Masturbation

Masturbation is the most frequently practiced sexual behavior in the world. Yet there are surprisingly few books written about masturbation, and most have been written in the past thirty years. Whether youíre looking for ideas on masturbation technique, or you want to know the history of masturbation myths or taboos, youíll likely find something of interest in this collection of the best books on masturbation.

1) Sex for One
If youíre looking to learn more about yourself and increase your own sexual satisfaction (both by yourself and with a partner) this is an essential read. Sex for One is both personal and political in its call for all of us to make better love to ourselves. It has none of the smarmy self-help lingo, but is inspiring and practical.

2) For Yourself
For women who want a structured guide to exploring their sexual potential, this book offers a wonderful and gentle guide to learning to become orgasmic, and learning to explore what role sex and sexuality can play in your life. Inspired by hundreds of therapeutic and sexual consciousness raising womenís groups led by Barbach, the book doesnít just cover masturbation, but it plays a key role in the path to sexual discovery.


3) Becoming Orgasmic: A Sexual and Personal Growth Program for Women
A more straightforward guide written by sex therapists for women who donít experience (or donít regularly experience) orgasm. Some may find this book too clinical, but for anyone who likes step by step instructions, exercises, and to the point information, Becoming Orgasmic is a great resource. The Becoming Orgasmic video which is a visual companion to the book, is available separately.

4) The Joy of Solo Sex
One of the few books that focuses solely on male masturbation, the Joy of Solo Sex, along with the second volume entitled offer stories, masturbation techniques, and reassurance that masturbation is a key part of sexual health.

5) Solitary Sex: A Cultural History of Masturbation
An important moment in the publication of Solitary Sex brought academic legitimacy to the topic of masturbation. Written by historian Thomas Laqueur, author of the seminal sexo-historical text Making Sex, Solitary Sex outlines the way masturbation went from an innocuous sexual behavior, to the most maligned form of sexual expression, to a primary tool of self-empowerment.

6) The Big Book of Masturbation
The closest thing to an encyclopedia of masturbation, The Big Book of Masturbation covers a wide range of perspectives across history and across cultures. With plenty of research, opinion, and lore on masturbation, Martha Cornog has compiled the most thorough cultural reference on this much maligned and practiced sexual behavior.

7) Good Vibrations
This book is meant to be a guide to using vibrators, and it includes some information about partners, but mostly itís about masturbation. Written by Joani Blank, the founder of Good Vibrations and Down There Press, this book offers practical masturbation techniques, plenty of reassurance for the masturbation novice, and a friendly tone that makes exploring new forms of masturbation seem less scary and more exciting.

8) First Person Sexual: Women & Men Write About Self-Pleasuring
This compelling collection features stories (both real and imagined) that focus on masturbation. Itís like picking up the diaries of a dozen strangers and reading their secret masturbation fantasies and thoughts. I wouldnít label this hardcore erotica but itís both a fascinating read, and in parts genuinely hot.

9) I Am My Lover: Women Pleasure Themselves
One of the only photo books in the world that celebrates masturbation. Twelve photographers present images of twelve women masturbating. Aside from the beautiful large format of the book, what sets these images apart from pornography is that fact that the women are not performing for us (or the camera), they are entirely engaged in the task at hand.

10) Masturbation as a Means to Achieving Sexual Health
A great resource for anyone who teaches about sexuality, this book is meant less for laypeople than it is for professionals. It covers a great deal of the psychological and sociological research thatís available on masturbation and clearly articulates why masturbation is considered, by most sexual health educators, to be the cornerstone of sexual health.

I just finished reading The Aenead, which I'd never read before, and started thinking about Troy again, which led me to the Greeks. So, I thought I would read the Odyssey and the Iliad again, but then I realized I'd never really read the famous plays of Greece (other than Oedipus Rex), so now I've started on Sophocles and I have piled on my nightstand Euripedes, Aristophanes and Aeschylus. I'm half way through Antigone, which is the powerful story of the daughter of Oedipus whose brother was killed in battle (against his/her brother), but because that brother, Polynices, fought against Thebes, the king (Creon) has demanded that he be left to rot on the battlefield - bird food. The sister, Antigone, disobeys that order.

It's amazing to me that I am, in effect, communicating with people who lived more than 2,000 years ago; People who gave birth to the tradition of civilization I now am part of. Their ideas and stories are the basis for our traditions, our ideas of patriotism, our philosophies of law and government, of culture, of science. To me, it's mind boggling to realize that at the time of Marathon and Thermopylae, these are the plays the people were watching. These were the ideas they were discussing; What is a citizen's responsibility to the state?

I am reading A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900. by andrew Roberts.

It takes off where Winston Churchhill left off in his volumes. Gotta into the first couple of chapters and it is a good read (so far) if you enjoy history sort of stuff.

A quote:"The English-speaking peoples rarely win the first battle but they equally rarely lose the subsequent war."

Default Introspection and a good book

I am amazed at how narrowly we all tend to focus when reading and how limited we mere mortals tend to truly be. Real growth appears almost like magic given or habits and limitations as readers. We don't have the time to read 10,000 books so we have to focus on 200.

I found the book "House of Morgan" to be a fascinating study of finance. If any of you have been taking a look at the markets I would consider this a worthwhile read. There are some serious corrections overdue in the market that I would like to learn about but don't want to get caught up in the politics. I just want the facts. This book is a tough read. It kind of changed my mind about how money REALLY works. It's kind of scary to see the inside of the sausage factory.

Is this the book where there's a pulse/heartbeat in the guy's head or surroundings? If it is, that is by far my least favorite Koontz book. It's been a long time since I read it, so I can't remember if that's the one.

That one was good, but "Watchers" is better.

House of Thunder was the very first Koontz book I read. It hooked me. It's still up there in my top 50 list.
