50 Book Challenge: 6-10

6. The Porn Trap – Wendy and Larry Maltz

I’ve got an interest in mental health, and this book is about something I knew very little about, porn addictions.  Having read the book I’m pretty sure “porn addiction” is code for anti-social and in need of some good therapy that has nothing to do with access to porn.  I dunno, I don’t buy that having access to porn is a problem.  And the book implies that masturbation is unhealthy, especially if you have a partner, which I really don’t believe.

7. Mort – Terry Pratchett, read by Nigel Planer

This one was OK, but not my favorite.

8. Sourcery – Terry Pratchett, read by Nigel Planer

Same.

9. Wyrd Sisters – Terry Pratchett, read by Nigel Planer

Much better than the first time I tried to read it.  I love the witches.  Magrat, Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax are three wonderfully realized women.  Terry Pratchett has a real genius with making three dimensional female characters.

10. Pyramids – Terry Pratchett, read by Nigel Planer

Hated this one so much I stopped listening to them for several weeks.

    Have you read Pratchett’s THE TRUTH yet? It’s my favorite discworld novel about the invention of a printing press. Hilarious and pointed.

    Also, it’s never Lupus. Never. Except when it was that one time in season 4…

    The truth is number 25 and I’m doing them in order, I’m on 13. Going Postal is the one I really want to read, about the post system, but it’s way down in the thirties.
