wholly shit/book review 8

so i wanna buy one of those christmas tree air freshners you hang on your rearview mirror, and hang in on the mirror on my motorcycle, i think it would be cool, and make my motorcycle smell fresh. also i was thinking of hanging some fuzzy dice on the other rear view mirror.

i was going to surmonize, but i think i shall save that for tomorrow. i want to let the ideas and words gel and coagulate and fully ripen before i pluck them from the idea vine and present them as palatable.

so years ago i read in a newspaper about people who would leave books for others to find and there was a website and all that. i forgot the details, but the idea stuck with me, so for a few years now i would occasionally leave books in various places, airports, restaurants, etc, for people to find. there was a note saying it was a free book, read it and pass it on. a few weeks ago (i think, i'm not good with time, it could have happened last week) i was surfing some blogs and found a link to, which was the site that had inspired me. so i joined. whree is all this going?

yesterday i "officially" released my first book, and when i got home, i logged on and it had been found and someone logged on to say so. cool! i don't know why this makes me so happy, but it does. so now i am looking forward to releasing another book.

i think it's a great idea, a world wide lending library, books circulating, being shared, it is so damn wonderful. if you subscribe to the belief that we impart some energy into the objects we use, then the books have all this energy in them, and it's kind of cool to think about that.

so speaking of books, yesterday i finished PETER AND THE STARCATCHERS by dave barry and ridley pearson, 451pp. it's the prequal to peter pan, it tells how peter pan became peter pan. yeah, it's a kid's book, but i liked it, it was bubblegum for the mind. it will be the next book i release.
