Why do women rub their little clits while reading romance novels yet men aren't interested at all in that genre...
>Women make up 84 percent of romance book buyers, and men make up 16 percent. https://www.rwa.org/p/cm/ld/fid=582
Is it cultural conditioning and the patriarchy creating this gender difference or is it something biological?
I cannot be assed to explain this in detail since the explanation would be so long but you can be assured that I am correct
polite sage since I'm not adding much to the thread
Here's how it was explained to me by a female friend who actually does read romance novels: she said a lot of women care far more about the feelings of attachment and longing that goes with it than they do the actual physical benis in bagina. I think this bears out because a lot of women don't seem to care if their men cheat, so long as side-stuff is just sex and nothing more.
Men, weirdly, don't seem to care if their women are longing for or have attachment to other guys, so long as it doesn't get physical. It's odd.
ITT: We post pics of our entire book collection
too bad i can only read the titles of like 8 books

How to get to such a level that I could read and understand foreign language fiction without much struggle?
I'm learning German and I can read news articles without much problem, but reading fiction is still a challenge. I tried to read Buddenbrooks, but shit was tough. I mean, I understood most words, but I got lost in longer sentences, and, I guess, the style of the author differs from that German language which I'm used to. Would comparing the original with the translation help to learn the language?
Lol at jumping right into Buddenbrooks. Brah I could hardly comprehend that shit in English. Jumping into Mann is like jumping into Beckett for someone new to English. Read fuckin Grimm brothers then progress to YA garbage. Only after you are completely comfortable with that shit should you give Musil, Mann, Kafka, Goethe, Hesse, Roth, Broch, Boll, Grass and Bernhard.
To all the leftists out there how does it feel to know that there's some shit tier writer out there that's actually picking up a cult following on cross site /pol/?
He's even written a novella that they like.
I've been considering exploiting /pol/ for pecuniary gain like that too, although theoretically if I DID have a series of shitty /pol/ novellas that were actually popular/controversial, I'd end up "blue-pilling" the main character at the end just to piss /pol/ off.
What does /lit/ think of this? It feels like cultural appropriation to me.
What worthwile fiction was released in 2015?
Outside of Soumission that is
Agree with what you said about Purity. I was comfortable the entire time. Though, I twitch a bit whenever koan gets through editing, it nearly always feels extremely forced and I see it all too often.
>tfw not socially acceptable for men to have handbags
>tfw if I want to take a book to work to read on the bus then I'll have to carry it on its own
>tfw people will judge me for reading / carrying a book
>tfw people will judge the book
Just carry a small rucksack by the handle? Less autistic than a satchel.
>tfw people will judge me for reading / carrying a book
what hick shithole do you live in that still has public transport?
Why post this thread? I really do pity you for having such a boring and attention-hungry personality that would lead to your posting this thread. It isn't funny, it isn't interesting, and it isn't informative. Please don't post on this board again, or at least think about what value you're contributing to your own life or to the lives of /lit/ posters before doing so again. I'm saging this post and hiding the thread so any reply will go unread on my part.
>durr what's a briefcase?
I weep for today's youth.
Anybody read the Fuehrer's favorite writer?
Guys I'm stuck on something, I can't figure something out and I'm obsessed about it. I will start by listing a couple of logical statements:
1. All words/ideas/concepts are the logical organization of other words/ideas/concepts.
2. Any attempt to think or talk about this any further is subject to the same regressive paradox. Even this. Even the original statement.
What the fuck. If you think about this enough you will be paralyzed.
Is this a good read? I don't know why but I really feel like grabbing this from the library tomorrow and reading it. Is there a specific edition or anything I should be looking out for?
If Victorian language doesn't bother you. Also: epilstilary and he repeats story points over and over from different characters points of view, so repetitive. Always go for the Norton Critical Edition, bro! It gives lots of footnotes for antiquated words and references.
I disagree, I didn't find it repetative at all. I found the form very engaging and well crafted, and each person's individual style and voice is very well done. seriously one of the best written works I've read.
best publication series?
i like the modern library classics too
obviously penguin is bullshit but I see their new hardcover series in bookstores constantly and theyre quite beautiful
Is Ready Player One YA?
Are books a good gift to give to, say, a girl or anyone else in general?
I just started this and what the fuck. Am I supposed to be completely lost? I can enjoy the little stories given in each chapter, but I have no idea why they are being told. How am I supposed to make any sense of them as a whole? Am I even supposed to?
Guve me the strength to keep going /lit/.
Literally just keep going OP, it's hundreds of pages in before some plot lines tie together. All memeing aside it's a great book, stick with it and it's an overall powerful experience.
What is the best title ever given to a book?
