I didn’t want Because It Feels Good: A Woman’s Guide to Sexual Pleasure and Satisfaction by Debby Herbenick to be the last book in this series. It’s not that I didn’t like the book — it’s a friendly, accessible guide to sex for women written about women that makes sure to include the mind as well as the body. But end the second go-round of Book a Week on a sex book? Well, it is what it is. I had to read it for work. I tried to read a literary biography as book 52, but it didn’t stick and put me to sleep.
Honesty time: I don’t think this version of “Book a Week with Jen” had the same zip as the first one. The first one, I think, was a way to get over a devastating breakup. I was dumped at the start of this one, too, but it wasn’t a sliver of the last experience, and I met Bill mid-way. Does being happy make someone a better or worse writer? I don’t know. But my angst sure did give me something to write about.
Thanks again for following along. As always, the archives are alive and well. Take a poke through if you’ve just started following. You might be surprised.
