"A list of books where only the sex scenes will offend you…not the horrible writing!"
I’ve read a few of these… I recommend Anais Nin’s Little Birds and anything Henry Miller. Lady Chatterly’s Lover probably didn’t make the list because the writing is also sort of dismal….but it was fun to read nonetheless. I imagine 50 Shades is like that too, though haven’t given into the hype… yet.
“The sad fact is that less than half of all Americans who start college ever finish, which leaves the United States dead last among the industrialized countries tracked for the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Our dropout rates are worst at community colleges and other two-year schools, but only about 56 percent of students seeking a bachelor’s degree make it to commencement within six years. For the country that invented modern higher education, that’s a pretty embarrassing record.”—Business - Jordan Weissmann - More Student Debt, Please: Why College Students Don’t Borrow Enough - The Atlantic (via infoneer-pulse)
