50-285

Saw this cover-up on one of the charity tables.
Thought I’d finally read it
(As I remember many friends doing when it was published, sales @ CostCo, etc.)
and thought I’d see what the fuss was all about.

Didn’t see back cover – Romance” !!, although I already knew’EROTIC”
Thot I did not know there was an actual genre of “EROTIC ROMANCE, but then I remember ed women reading ‘bodice-rippers’ @ some point in my life.

STILL pondering what to say; NOT ambivelant….

For some reason, both The Odessa File and the Cobra were 0n-&-off again readings.

 

  • ODESSA FILE, The *****
    I sure i’ve read this before (© 1972), started it, lost my place, but i enjoyed it so much I just went back to the beginning!

Bot for a buck w/ broken spine i made worse; hope to fix as last…

  • COBRA,The – On first reading the back-cover, I dismissed this book about cocaine (and worse, Crack) b/c, as a former nurse, I maintain that:
    the ‘War on Drugs’ will never be won b/c, @ the USER-level,
    this is a MEDICAL (addiction) problem, NOT a criminal one.
    Spend the bl**dy $$$ on re-hab clinics!

    But i was enjoying The Odessa File so much that I picked it up anyway.
    I found myself on pp 114 on February 26th, and, as above, went back to-the-beginning and quickly caught up.
    This is NOT a regular ‘war-on-drugs’ book: it assails the SOURCE in a very bold manner.  If the U.S./Euro  gov’ts actually had the guts the try this, it just might work!

Post-pub: OH, GEEZ, I WANTED to save this as a DRAFT!!
WAS: 
Books – “The Dark Side”

I’ve been blessed with two VERY local charity book sales for months now.
I was [packing] for a [SPRING?]garage-sale with a friend,
and came across a {you know, small but HEAVY} box marked,
“2016-Aug – Books – ?/Trade”
I have discovered that some “best-selling” authors ARE ok,
and will never lose my affection for Scarpetta or Reichs,
but how many of these characters can one follow?

PLEASE do me a favour and comment on anybody here that you READ?

CROSSWORDS: I LOVE them; they’re good for the (ageing) brain,
but I just don’t seem to have antytime anymore…

PSYCHO-PICTOGRAPHY: I’m fairly certain this came from my late Uncle Bill
– the master of self-help books, or possibly my ex-husband.
(If I’ve read it, it’s not been for YEARS.
