Works for me.
I pay .25 for most of my... graphic novels as the librarian thinks they are children's books. Jokes on her. I'm an adult!

Yah, I believe Playboy ran excerpts from the book on a regular basis many moons ago lol.

When I was about 10 or 11, I used to go to the book section in the local drug store to read the spicy parts.

My dad always had a good collection lying around lol.
Still has them all stacked up in his basement, the old goat.
He probably has forgotten that they are there

I am in the middle of "One Rough Man: a Pike Logan Thriller" by Brad Taylor. This is his 1st book, and I have a hard time putting it down. Very similar to Vince Flynn and Brad Thor, I must say pretty good book for a rookie. He has a second one out now too, and I am going to check that one out too.

He kept his in the attic.

When I was 10 I asked for them and was told no.

Can't think of the name, but the main characters are Dick, Jane and their dog Spot.
