Free audio erotica: “Book Lover” by Donna George Storey, read by Rose Caraway, from the audiobook The Big Book of Orgasms: 69 Sexy Stories. Listen here for free or subscribe to Rose’s podcast The Kiss Me Quick’s in iTunes. Here’s a little snippet of the story about a woman who loves and lusts after books - do give a listen to the whole thing:
In honor of my misspent youth, I picked up a familiar title by Updike and leafed through it, looking for a salacious scene. I wasn’t having much luck. On a whim, I pressed my nose to the inner crease of the binding. To my surprise, a sharp jolt of arousal shot straight to my pussy. Had some previous owner doused the pages with an aphrodisiac? I closed my eyes and took another hit. My cunt muscles fluttered and my knees melted like the inside of a roasted marshmallow. Cruising on the sexual high, I tilted my head back and sighed.

Still, I thought the Internet was an emotionally safe way of keeping up with him; after all, he presumably didn’t know about it, and neither did anyone else. But, I did, and that was the problem. Every time I gleaned something new online — whether it was from a silly Vine video, a status update about a restaurant he’d tried, or even a random news article he’d posted — I obsessed over it, sometimes for hours. I got so good at analyzing his every move online that I knew when he was flirting with someone on Twitter, even if on the surface the words seemed benign. I’d made baby steps toward stopping this behavior in the past, un-friending him on Facebook when I started seeing things there that were a little too personal. Yet, I could still view his profile, which I’d sometimes spend an hour browsing, often more, if it was late at night.
— "Why I Stopped Facebook-Stalking My Ex" on Refinery29 by me (which I keep thinking is called "How I Stopped…" and it’s about that too).

"McCracken’s writing is dark and weirdly funny, exploring the fragility of people and communities." Awesome to see Thunderstruck and Other Stories by Austinite Elizabeth McCracken on The New Yorker’s list of books to look out for in April. 
We’re excited to have this book on our shelves later this month (4/22). Julie read it and has this to say: “McCracken explores the unexpected avenues of loss in this absorbing new collection. What I love about McCracken is knowing that the characters I meet on her pages will never be typical. I come again and again to the little girl dressed as Patrick Henry; a room full of budgies to replace a prodigal son; the emotional terrain of traumatized librarians. The ways we deal with absence are at the heart of each story and its haunting characters. McCracken’s humor brings levity to this unique, memorable collection.”
McCracken reads from and signs her collection here 4/22.

Looking forward to reading this.
