My trashy summer reading is trashier than your trashy summer reading

Filed under: Fun — Lex @ 11:14 pm

I’ve got not one but two novels about a guy named Felix Gomez who goes off to Iraq a soldier, comes back a vampire and now works as a private detective, investigating nymphomaniacs (first novel) and “x-rated bloodsuckers” (second novel). (And, boy howdy, what’re those terms going to do for my hit count when the search engines get hold of ’em?)

Can you outtrash that?

Thought not.

Kicker: I borrowed them from the Greensboro Public Library.



  1. I had purchased Arturo-Perez Reverte’s Captain Alatriste and Purity of Blood, but I was looking for Kevin Phillips’ American Dynasty in the Bush Hatred section of our library, when I ran across John Kennedy Toole’s A Confederacy of Dunces, which I will probably read.

  2. “A Confederacy of Dunces” is magnificent. You’ll really enjoy it.

  3. I’ve picked those up and put them back down at Borders a couple of times – let me know how they are.
