Fine Literature

It's time for a revival of fine literature of the past, that somehow became neglected as our public libraries became more digitized.  Here are some important works that originally appeared in paperback in an earlier time before paperbacks got fully respectable as trade editions.  Perhaps some of you bibliophiles might actively seek out this neglected literature in used book outlets or in attics.

Who says you can't tell a book by its cover?

An angel sometimes lacks angelicalness.
 
Millicent learns the fine points of package lifting
before starting work at FedEx.
  
Andrea finds the temptations of politics to be too much.
  
On the Road for ladies, with fashion advice
for the would-be travelers.
 
Trilby learned more than just how to sing due to hypnosis.
 

Tara, though old, can still learn new tricks.

Saunndra, Marilyn and Joan occupy Wall Street.
 
Another classic by Sheldon Lord.
Sheldon Lord rated another book with a better cover.
Megan joined the Liberterian Party to meet new friends.

 
Only seven?


Truly demented look.

Probably not a feminist tract.
All policemen have big feet,
Buy their shoes on Rampart Street.

I must have a very tame collection of paperbacks. Sigh.

Porn-loving uncles or older brothers are good to have!
