    In no particular order:

    1. I am incapable of passing the library without popping in.

    2. It's a means of avoiding the housework.

    3. It's a way of shutting out whinging children.

    4. Otherwise I'd have to watch reality TV.

    5. I'd have lost all my remaining brain cells by now and become a mindless Stepford Wife drone.

  2. Tam says:

    Jen took my good ones.

    1. It means I can weigh in on any conversation because I've read about “it” in a book, no matter what “it” may be.

    2. Having money in the bank is over-rated.

    3. I'm lazy.

    4. It's slightly less destructive (but more addictive) than crack cocaine.

    5. Book sluts are cool and I always wanted to hang with the cool kids.

  3. Anonymous says:

    1. Knowing that a zombie sex scene will be written in the future.

    2. More skeery book covers to make fun of!

    -Your friendly skeery book cover who still needs to be fed.

  4. cause books feel so good when you rub them all over…

    oops wrong blog.

  5. Tam says:

    No KB, this is the right blog. LOL

    Book Cover: Ally Blue already wrote a zombie sex scene. It's been done. Sorry to disappoint.

  6. Ingrid says:

    Kris, #2 is a real winner!!

  7. Kris says:

    Jen: That should be a slogan: “Avoid becoming a housewife zombie. Read a book.” LOL.

    Tam: Good ones, although I think it's the first time in my life that anyone's every called me cool. *snort*

    My problem is whenever I use the 'read it in a book' thing I always get the 'and if someone told you to jump off a bridge I s'pose you'd do that too' response. *sigh* My family is full of smart arses.

    Skeery book cover monster: You eated yesterday. You know you can't eat all the time otherwise you'll die from bad taste.

  8. Kris says:

    Katiebabs chook: What Tam said. 🙂 You know we're probably the only ones who will ever understand a book fetish. 😉

    Tam: Ally Blue did? Did bits fall off mid-way??

    Ingrid: *hehehe*

  9. K. Z. Snow says:

    1. The nuns made me do it.
    2. It's safer to read than to smoke during boring sex.
    3. Books contain words.
    4. I like channeling dead authors.
    5. Reality bites.

  10. Kassa says:

    1. Their lives are more interesting.

    2. Eventually I'll find a book that exceeds a world record for cum shots.

    3. What else would i do with all my gadgets?

    4. Someone has to support the penniless writers.

    5. Because it never stops at being just a slut.

  11. Tam says:

    Kris: Yes, yes it did. I think. I remember the muscle tone was gone. LOL To be honest it's quite a sweet story – zombies aside. 🙂

    Read it, it's free.

  12. Mumma J says:

    Okay, my 5…

    1. It blocks out the real world.

    2. So many books, so little time…

    3. I haz a lap… for the boys (catz that is).

    4. I don't have to look at, and listen to, my messy, yukky house calling my name.

    5. Well SHIT isn't it what BOOK SLUTS do?

  13. Kris says:

    KZ: I thought you were gonna say that it keeps the voices in your head quiet, which I'd kinda believe if it was you. *g*

    Kassa: “Eventually I'll find a book that exceeds a world record for cum shots.” *snort* You're still doing the counting thing, aren't you.

    Tam: Sweet?? Hun, we need to talk.

    Mumma: Good point with #5. Very good point. lol

  14. Tam says:

    “3. I haz a lap… for the boys (catz that is).”

    Uh huh. Nice recovery there Mumma. Sure, the cats. 😉

  15. Kris says:

    Yanno, something I just realised… not only are we Book Sluts, but we are technically Book Johns.

  16. Mumma J says:

    To misquote Willy (he he he… pun intended) What's in a name?

  17. Mumma J says:

    Tam: Reading Dash and Dingo now and one could say that they are in my lap… he he he (laptop that is)

  18. Kris says:

    Mumma, you know you will probably go to teacher's hell for making a cock joke about Shakespeare. Just sayin'.

  19. Tam says:

    Teacher's hell = permanently teaching 13 year olds. Ack!

    Hope you enjoy D&D, it's a lot of fun and kind of sad too.

  20. Mumma J says:

    Sad… Sad Tam… Jeez, maybe I should't read it.

    I've kinda got a lot to cry about right now!

  21. Tam says:

    Well, I meant sad about the Tiger and what happened to them in general, not in the book specifically. The relationship part is not sad and leaves you feeling good.

  22. Kris says:

    OMFG. I just had a vision of the Mumma reading dry tree sex. O_O

  23. Mumma J says:

    Just up to that part now!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Chris says:

    1-5: *insert #5 from Mumma J's list*

    That skeery book cover's going all “Seymour, feed me” on us, isn't it?

  25. Kris says:

    I'm sooo sending an email to Sean and telling him that Mumma is learning all about m/m sex from his book. *mwahahahahaha*

    My Mumma not so innocent any more. 🙂

    Chris, you're such an unrepentant Book Slut. No wonder I like you. LOL. How many books did you end up buying today anyway??

    “That skeery book cover's going all “Seymour, feed me” on us, isn't it?”

    I was imagining what it might look like. Now I have the perfect picture. *g*

  26. Tam says:

    *sniff* *sniff* Mumma's all grown up now. She knows about the birds and the birds, she's lost her innocence. I'm so touched to have been a part of it all. She'll be leaving the nest soon and flying free (hardcore BDSM m/m/m). *sob*

  27. Chris says:

    Look! Over there! Kittens!

    Did it work? No?

    Um… Well, 18 from fictionwise, then the daily deal over at Amber Allure, then I had to pick my Amber Rewards book while I was there, plus there were those seven $0.50 books at the library withdrawn store over lunch.

    Um… it's my birthday tomorrow. That's it. That's why. I'd NEVER buy that many books in a day otherwise. Nope. Nosiree.

  28. Lily says:

    1- I'd go absolutely stark raving mad if I couldn't escape into a book.

    2- Where else would I learn about the proper care needed before anal sex. Repeat after me: 1 finger, 2 fingers then 3 and you're ready, now go for it!!!

    3- How else can I ignore the wash, the dusting and the dishes?

    4- Just because!

    5- What can I say, it's a calling. I always wanted to be a slut of some kind. And this is the only kind of slut my hubby approves of.

  29. Kris says:

    There, there, Tam. Consider it practice for when the girl child leaves home.

    Chris: Where????? OMG. they're Russian Blues!!! Quick hide all the breakables, tearables, in fact, just put everything into storage. It will be easier.

    “Um… it's my birthday tomorrow. That's it. That's why. I'd NEVER buy that many books in a day otherwise. Nope. Nosiree.”

    Gee, Chris. I'm convinced. *rolls eyes*

    Lily! “I always wanted to be a slut of some kind.” *gasp* I'm shocked. 😉

  30. Chris says:

    It really IS my birthday tomorrow. Or today, I suppose, where you are. 😀

    Darn, I forgot one of the books I got at the library store.

    Hee hee – the destructive potential of all those kittens, should they awake at the same time…

  31. K. Z. Snow says:

    KZ: I thought you were gonna say that it keeps the voices in your head quiet, which I'd kinda believe if it was you. *g*

    Nope. Just stirs 'em up.

  32. Lily says:

    Kris, it would be shocking if I were actually a slut of any kind other than a book slut. I'm a good girl, really I am. ;D

  33. Kris says:

    Chris, so I was reading about you ( and it says “In fact you need overkill to feel really alive.” That would certainly your book buying habits. 😉

    With all those kittens, especially as they are Russian Blues and if there are a number of males amongst them, it would be the end of life as we know it. I kid you not.

    KZ: Oh. The channeling thing.

    Lily: Yeah, hun. Sure you are.

  34. Chris says:

    Ok, that astrology description was kinda spooky. Eeep!

  35. JenB says:


    …don't like zombies.

  36. Kris says:

    Chris, it hit home, did it. LOL.

    Jen: If you don't like 'em in the same way I don't like spiders you have absolutely no idea how much I'm holding myself back right now.

  37. I sniff my books like glue! See, I am the ultimate book slut.

  38. Kris says:

    I guess if we're talking technically then yes, having a book sex fetish makes you a book slut, Katiebabs chook.

    Ultimate though…. 😉

  39. Chris says:

    Hmm. Sounds like a completely fresh new award could be created for Katiebabs…

  40. I deserve my own award. dammit.

  41. Anonymous says:

    KB does deserve her own award. She pimps out my brothers in arms.

    -Skeery cover book monster.

  42. Kris says:

    *sigh* Chris, don't encourage her… or the monster either.

  43. Melissa says:

    I wanted to play too…

    1. How else would I constructively spend my husbands money and not feel one ounce of guilt?

    2. I'm a librarian in training.

    3. cause I don't smoke, drink, etc.

    4. What Tam Said

    5. Because being a book slut allows me to totally ignore everything around me, kid/husband/housework/homework, etc…

  44. Kris says:

    Melissa, the unrepentant spending of someone else's money. Nice one. LOL.
