Got a Book Today!

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , at 4:20 pm by Kathleen

I was quickly running low on good reading material, so I was excited when I finally got my copy of Jenny Block’s book on polyamory and her open marriage. I am looking forward to reading it and reviewing it with you.

So much of what we read makes such perfect sense when we read it. On paper, there is no reason for jealousy, no reason for pain… if you have ever read The Ethical Slut, you know that on paper it can even seem like dating is a piece of cake. (All you need to do is want multiple partners, and there you have it!)

The real world is a lot more complicated, and real human emotions can be annoying, unpredictable, and downright frustrating.  For example, the emotional dam burst that had me sobbing for no apparent reason at 2am yesterday.  It’s nice to retreat into a book from time to time, where you know what the outcome will be (or if you don’t know, you can find out with the flip of a few pages).

I look forward to retreating into Jenny’s world and forgetting about my own, just for a little while… I’m sure it will be a fun journey.
