Wednesday reading — sex and shopping

What I've been reading

I read Shopaholic to the Stars. I might not keep up with these books so assiduously—they're still fun, but they're not as fun as the first few—except that my mother loves them and so I always read them for mother-daughter bonding purposes. (This is funnier if you know that my mother's idea of profanity to shout at a driver who has really pissed her off is "Stupidhead!" and she is uncomfortable when they show kissing on network television, and really these books should be much too sweary and rude for her.) I'm a little bemused that this one ends on a sort of cliffhanger involving an already-baffling subplot, though. They're more the sort of books where everything is wrapped up in one giant eucatastrophe at the end.

I read Surpassing the Love of Men: Romantic Friendship and Love Between Women from the Renaissance to the Present. I was most interested in the 18th and 19th century material, which I thought was a useful and interesting overview; the later, yay-political-lesbian stuff, not so much, but that is, itself, of course, of its own time.

What I'm reading now

The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones. Fake history, yay!
