That looks like my kind of book. Just went to Amazon and did the 1 click thing. Thanks asshole. You and Stephanie are going to make me broke!! Broke I tell you!

Davis said...

Anything I can do! Sometimes I think I should spend more time with what I post. Maybe I'd get more smarter! Yuck-Yuck

Steph said...

The best teacher I ever had made us keep our "textbooks" in our lockers and had us all buy a copy of "A People's History of the United States" by Howard Zinn.

He became my hero.

Monkey said...

Stephanie, you freaking scare me. I just read Howard Zinn's "A people's History". So good. I heard him first on iTunes of all places. Such an interesting man.

Oh my.

Steph said...

No way!!

This is freaky.

You should definitely check out "Lies My Teacher Told Me" by James Loewen. We should start an on-line book club.

Hmmm...

Jimmy said...

Those are good books. I don't completely trust Zinn, but he's definitely worth the reading.
You should also check out the anthologies "Abuse Your Illusions," "You Are Being Lied To" and "Everything You Know Is Wrong." Zinn has some articles in those, and some of the stuff in there will keep you up late at night.
I have the whole kook library here at home. Ha!
I want in on the book club. We can meet at our naked vacation.

Steph said...

Haha! Naked book club.

Anywho. I'll definitely check those books out. Do you read Chomsky at all?

Monkey said...

Naked Book Club at Monkey's Human's Blog!

""You Are Being Lied To" This is the only one out of the bunch that I've read so far.

I've only read articles by Chomsky, but I've enjoyed what I've read.

Book Club! Should I start a new blog called "Naked Book Club"?

Monkey's HUman, dressed in Monkey's clothes.

Jimmy said...

I, too, have only read an article or two by Chomsky, but to be honest, I can't remember much about them, it's been so long.
So, how will the Naked Book Club work? This could be fun.

Steph said...

How would Naked Book Club work? Well we could sit around and read Burroughs and Sedaris.

Hahaha...literary humor is the best.

Jimmy said...

Ha! Good one. I didn't know if we would read books with "Naked" in the title or actually be naked when we read something.

Steph said...

I think it should be part HNT and book club. HNT = Half Nekkid Thursday that was mentioned on Monkey's blog. Digital Camera's + HNT + Book Club Book = Naked Book Club.

And be creative!!

Haha...this could be bad. HNT actually seems pretty innocent.

I don't know where I'm going with this.

Jimmy said...

Yes, I've been reading about HNT on Monkey's blog and others. Looks interesting. You're right, it does sound strangely innocent.
However, I think a motley gang like us would have to go the whole route to Fully Naked Thursday Book Club.
I can picture the letterhead now!

Steph said...

Why read your books Fully Clothed when you can read them....

Fully Naked!!

Jimmy said...

Stephanie, I think you just came up with our slogan.

Davis said...

I'll start designing the logo.....(he-he)

Steph said...

This is going to be awesome. Although I'm a little afraid of what the logo might turn out to be....

Jimmy said...

The logo will be all of us with our books, um, strategically positioned.

Steph said...

Oh man, I got to think of a funny book to be holding. Err..books

Jimmy said...

I think I'll use Stephen King's "It." Hee-hee.
Davis, I'll send you the pic . . .

Davis said...

How about we all stand backwards and everyone holds a copy of "Everybody Poops" over our cheeks.....OH YEAH!

(giggity)
