As you might expect from a po' ass po'n star like me, I LOVE free things. As many of you already know, I also like books. There may be no greater thing in the world than free information (expect maybe free food and shelter). In just such a spirit of FREEdom (and in honor of an extra "free" Leap Day), I decided to make a pilgrimage to the Baltimore Book Thing, a complimentary repository of printed matter, available to anyone who makes an effort to peruse the shelves of donated paperbacks and German language textbooks to find that one gem lost in the stacks: take as many as you'd like for free, no strings attached. If you can donate a few along the way, even better.
Despite its convenient location a few blocks from Johns Hopkins University, the LGBTTQ section leaves much to be desired. With only four slim volumes on feminist political theory to keep it company, "Eight Days A Week" desperately clawed for my attention. An appropriate title to find on an "extra" day after all right? Even more appropriately, the cover smarts a handsome looking Nordic doppelgänger by the name of Keith Keller. If there was one erotic novel meant for me, this might be it. With 64 short chapters and some promising pre-AIDS sex scenes, I've decided to read the entire book. . . to you! Every 8 days, I'll try to release a new chapter. I can't promise much bang for your buck, but then again you're getting this for free. Just like me. ;-)
