1001 Ways to Use A Jar Of Honey



Thanks to a slightly diabolical subliminal suggestion by Kate at Babbling About Books and another throw-down by Mandi at Smexybooks, I fell off the "no-more-kooky-books-for-me" bandwagon. Sigh. Yes, that's right. I actually bought a book called....

Bearotica: Hot and Hairy Fiction.


It's a collection of erotica short stories about gay men who love "Bears".....you know, big, masculine, hairy, gay guys. Okay, so this is problematic for several reasons. One, I'm not a huge fan of erotica....I like romance much better. And two, I don't really read M/M stories. But the hairy, beary part was just too good to pass up.

There are 17 stories in this collection, including such titles as "Honey," "Bubbacious," and "Fuzzy Butt." (Stop laughing).

I have only just started reading this book, but so far I've concluded....

1) Mandi and Kate have a mean streak.
2) Eating lunch while reading bearotica is a really bad idea.
3) Even Penelope has her limits about hairy dudes.

I will keep you updated about my progress, which hopefully will not include long-term therapy. But it might. After finishing the first story, I had the distinct urge to curl up in a blanket and read Dr. Seuss.

Happy Tuesday,
Penelope

I'm going to read this too...I feel like I may have met my match. BRING ON THE HAIRY MEN!!! ;)

Oh, Mandi....I had to DNF the 2nd story. This book might be too hardcore for me....I feel the need to read some rated G, Amish romances to cleanse my soul. (Amish guys have beards, too).

Can't wait to see what you think about this! Something tells me there are better books for an M/M intro.

;^)

Ha ha haa....you are diabolical! I am very interested to hear what you think about this one....

It's very....sticky!

"Fuzzy Butt"??? OMG! ROTFLMAO! You are a very brave woman to read that book. I would not touch it - I don't have what it takes. lol Good luck with the book...really, good luck.

Penelope said...

Hi Julie...maybe I'll read Fuzzy Butt next.....hee hee!

OMG. I'm going to dare you to go bungee jumping! You'll probably do it! Bearotica...hmmmm - perhaps next we'll do sealerotic or otterotica.
I have such a sensitive gag reflex - if it gets to you, I can only imagine how hardcore it is...
Mandi and Katie are evil twins.

Penelope said...

Hi Julia! I'm finding them strangely fascinating...grotesque, hilarious and outrageous! I guess that's a good combination???

Wow. Haven't read a word and I'm already blushing and nervous. Don't think I'd get past the title page in that one.

Lindsay....I'm going to "skim read" until I find one I can handle....hee hee!
