it's been taking me weeeekkkksss to get through books lately. i'd like to make a point to be on the internet less in my everyday. it certainly is a distraction. this week i'll try more page flipping, less screen scrolling. i've got a lot of books i'd like to get through this summer/winter.

hello all, i've been meaning to tell you for a long time now that if you want to know me at all, you'll need to know of my longtime intrigue/love for the groupie! i have read all the bios (patti boyd (meh...), marianne faithful (a goodie!), carol ann harris (not a groupie i know, but same sort of thing. you get juicy behind the scenes band tidbits while living your high school dream of a rockstar being all gushy over you through her stories), to name a few...). the absolute best of the best is Pamela Des Barres. not only does she have a past as probably the most famous groupie ever (think penny lane in Almost Famous), she is an incredible writer. her book I'm With The Band is my favourite book of all time! i've read Take Another Little Piece of My Heart and it made me super happy too. she has such a way with words; it's as if she is capable of putting to paper all of those silly thoughts we all have but can never really explain out loud. there is also an innocence that comes through in her writing that is charming and captivating. i do love Miss Pamela. i'm just waiting for the day that i can join in one of her writing workshops (please, oh please come to sydney!).
THE book, i love it
