fuck the common core and fuck the way we "educate" kids nowadays,
Do people actually like Celine? I'd sooner read 50 Shades of Grey than another pile of pedantic smut passed off as literature by this ugly fucker. Seriously, fuck this guy; he sucks.
Anyone read this? Really good book about a man who enters the world of neo-nazi skinheads, forms two bands and finally leaves after seven years.
Lots of books published nowadays include this statement. Mostly YA, but it goes beyond that.
What are some GOOD books about slut shaming? I haven't read Houellebecq, but I think this is one of the themes of his books_

All right jerks. Ignoring patrician supremist arguments, what do we think?
I liked it a lot when I read it but that was like 8 years ago or something and I was rather young. What I remember mostly is that the atmosphere was very mystical and believable, in more of a mythic than typical fantasy fashion.
How to get paid writing erotica?
I want to make money on the side writing this shit. How do i get started?
When did it fall out of practice for novels to come with illustrations?
Now it seems that illustrations are considered worthy of only children books.
Why can't the latest best seller come with an illustration every fifty pages?
