“I love it so much I read the book every year” – Yeah? Well, I read stuff on the internet a lot.


I’ve always been impressed with those individuals who, when talking of their favorite novels, say something to the effect of, “I love it so much I read it every year.” While there are certainly some books that I look forward to reading again (if only because it has been so long that some of the details escape me), I just don’t have the time. I have trouble enough reading new material that were I to sit down, balance academia, politics and my copies of Brave New World, Fight Club, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas I’d find myself in a perpetual loop of literary finitude. So, those few things that I do re-read frequently often are not that long (short stories, articles, novellas, etc.), are not always of the highest quality, etc. etc.

Regardless, I love them and always enjoy sharing them with everyone who doesn’t ask.

One such article is from 27b/6 titled “Missing Missy” (you may already be familiar with it since it’s fairly popular). The reason why it has come to mind is because the author, David Thorne, has recently published another book “I’ll Go Home Then, It’s Warm and Has Chairs: The Unpublished Emails” (Before looking it up, read this article about an argument Thorne had with Penguin Publishing regarding his copyright infringement of their logo for the cover of his book).

Honestly, no matter how many times I read “Missing Missy” I can’t control my giggling.

Genius.

  2. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
