This is a community for smart people who are addicted to trashy books. Or any books, for that matter. Said books may or may not have anything to do with sex and/or sluts....
After getting irritated with most of the book communities on livejournal, I decided to set up one of my own.
I am supposedly some sort of person of acceptable intelligence. I have read books by smart people; books that have a lot of PAGES, even. And I enjoy these books.
However, I'll be damned if I'm going to spend all my time reading those books. Yeesh. One on top of the other on top of the other... That's thickbookoverload. So I like to read dumb books -- Books with no point. Or they have a point, but no evidence of smartness. Or something. Whatever.
The person who reads Howard Zinn and Charles Dickens is easily capable of being the same person who also reads Patricia Cornwell and Shopaholic Takes Manhattan.
(I am not this person; I can't stand reading Dickens. But that's not the point.)
