Madonna Trumps Books with Her Own Craziness

Does anyone think that maybe Madonna is acting out in reaction to her brother's new tell-all? Madonna's been kinda boring for the past few years. I mean, the biggest scandal was that she adopted a child. Oooo. And now, just when news breaks that her estranged brother has written a book for Simon Spotlight Entertainment, boom. She's getting divorced, she's breaking up marriages. Her happy and boring Kaballah/yoga/family centric existence has disappeared. Coincidence? I think not.

And more importantly, do you think Christoper Ciccone is scrambling to write his follow-up with all this new ammunition?

Motherfuckin' Snakes at a Motherfuckin' Bookstore

The obvious choice for this week's literary event would be Thrillerfest, but eh. I doubt any of you will go unless you're working it. Instead, let's go with another thrilling (ha ha) event: Quick Thrills from Out-of-Towners. Eight writers (Mario Acavedo, Laura Benedict, J.T. Ellison, Michelle Gagon, Shane Gericke, Tim Maleeny, Alexandra Sokoloff, and the ever-popular Lee Child) this Thursday, 8:00 pm, at the Park Avenue Borders.

No booze, I'm afraid, but one lucky reader will win....AN EIGHT FOOT PLUSH SNAKE (yep, that's the actual snake to your right). Rockin'. I've been told, off the record, that you could probably smuggle in your own flask if you wish.

Do tell,

The Editor
