This baffles me.
I read everything. I read fiction books. I read comic books. I read history books.
Real life is dull at times. Why not read books? Or as I like to call them: time machines that contain all information that’s ever been documented or learned or portrayed in the history of the universe.
I like reading about things that are illegal or strange. I’m a fairly law-abiding citizen, so getting an inside view of something that’s illegal or out of the ordinary is interesting. I find reading about how drug cartels work (especially the economics) fascinating. And prostitution rings. And the mafia. And pirates. Yeah – pirates are awesome.
I’ve heard some people say that the only productive reading is history or non-fiction. They’re wrong.
So naturally, when I found out that Neil Strauss followed Jenna Jameson around to document what it was like being a porn star, it nearly blew my…mind.
