Sinful Sunday: Books

When you walk into a bookshop, are you ever just overwhelmed by the sheer magnificence filling the shelves around you? All those hundreds upon hundreds of books, filled with adventure and magic – wonder and delight – waiting for you to open them and find out what’s inside.

I can rarely leave without buying something, which means my shelves (and cupboards, boxes, suitcases…) now bulge with more words than I will ever be able to read over the course of my life. It’s comforting and thrilling, all at the same time. They cover the spectrum of human emotion and experience: life, love, death, sorrow, fear, friendship…and sex. Books and sex are inextricably, gloriously linked – let’s face it, books themselves are sexy as fuck.

Sometimes I want to take all those books off my shelves, out of my cupboards, and just roll around on a big pile of them. That feels like it would be pretty sexy too.

    Oooh I have a few of those. Focused.

  2. I like the meta-arse theme of this picture. If only you were reading a book all about your *own* ass it would be perfect. Mind out for papercuts, now.

    Man, I fucking LOVE this and it’s exactly along the same lines of what I’d planned to do, although you pull it off waaaay better. Kudos to you, sir.

    I completely agree with you about books and bookshops. I actually avoid them sometimes because I am rubbish as leaving without something.

    This is SUCH a great shot, books and reading are damn sexy and you have captured that idea perfectly


  5. This is wonderful . . . so clever, so fun. Must have taken you ages to arrange . . . hope you didn’t get any of those pages wet and sticky!!!

    Oh, I love this so much. Books books books to zoom in on and nosy at but on top of that (literally) an uninterrupted view of your brilliant back and butt. All the beautiful B’s!! Xxxxx

  7. Now what caught my eye first, the Books or Buttocks?

    Love that you’re reading GOTN’s book.

    Hmmm… Given what you’ve written about your tastes, I’m gonna take a wild guess: Chapter 6? 😉
