Despite not being allowed to read my books, the Short Kid is mom’s biggest fan, so it took him about five seconds to snag a Kowalski bookmark for his very own.
It took me several days to realize he was using the bookmark in his current read, which also meant he was taking the bookmark to school.
I’m pretty sure Bitches isn’t on the fifth grade vocabulary list, so we broke out dad’s black electrical tape and did a little creative redacting.
I’m working on addressing envelopes for the (non-redacted) bookmarks, so as a reminder…
If you’d like a bookmark, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Bookmarks” in the subject line and your mailing address. If you’d like extra to share with book-loving friends or family, just tell me how many you’d like.
The fine print: I pinky-swear your information won’t be shared. Once I’ve addressed an envelope to you, I’ll be deleting your email. I won’t save your mailing address, nor will I add your email address to my newsletter list (although if you’d like to subscribe yourself, you can do that here.)
I had to smile My 17 year-old said to me the other day, ‘you don’t have sex scenes in your books do you, Mum?’
I said, ‘There are some.’
He looked at me and said, ‘Mum, you don’t have sex scenes in your books.’
‘OK,’ I said.
Ah, denial, nothing quite like it!
LOL I love it. And Fiona, that is hilarious, too!
This book is good till I got to page 128 “still don’t get why it is tells me I was right about you.” this is chapter 8
Then the book stuns to page 225. “easy ,and she found…..” this section lasts to page 256 then the pages turn to 161 chapter 10
I want a new book.
Nice reading your mail,
Senator, we are all aware of the growing promiscuity that faces today’s nation. As a college student I feel particularly aware of the philosophies of my peers and their rough upbrinnging. But to suggest that we will people into abstinence through ignorance is a falsity that challenges the purposes of education.
