Summer-of-Supervillainy is reading Tropic of Night by Michael Gruber & quoting passages of it to me on IM

Summer: “The first thing that hit me was his skin, not the butterscotch color of it, but the texture, which was smooth as ivory, like a child’s skin. Lickable skin; it looked like it would actually dissolve sweetly on your tongue”

Summer: white person, stop. ugh.

Me: I should write my white chars like this… “The first thing that hit me was his skin, not the used baseball color of it, but the texture, which was smooth as leather with the occasional line.  Grippable skin; it looked like you could actually throw an easy backdoor curve with it.”

Summer: XDDD

Summer: that is amazing

So, late last night scandalousnurse suggested we compare books and immathrowabrickatyou was curious what’s on my shelves too.  

So, I spent like two hours just now cataloging every book currently in my possession (not including stuff on my Kindle, or things that are in storage for safekeeping, i.e., sets of Dickens and Shakespeare published in the 1800s). 

So, here’s a list of all the books I currently own, organized by category and then alphabetized by author, because I work in a bookstore and that’s how we do things.
