My coolest journal yet!
"The Tuesday Erotica Club" by Lisa Beth Kovetz
I sent this book out as a bookring in 2007. It got lost in the mail, so I pleaded for a replacement copy on the forum.
The author heard about my plight, so she sent me an autographed copy of the book so I could continue my ring!
How cool is that? :)
