The Oldest Profession Sells Books

Wednesday, February 25th, 2004 • 3 Comments on The Oldest Profession Sells Books

Rumor ‘round the blogging community is that Belle de Jour, who I link to in my Weblogs and Friends section over there on the right, has signed a very lucrative book contract.  Her weblog—that of a high class London call girl—is certainly entertaining and well-written.  The question of whether she’s really a call girl or just a writer with an active imagination has come up, but what does it matter?  Sex sells. 

Apparently the answer to the question, “Who do I have to sleep with to get a book deal?” is quite a few lonely London businessmen.  Good for her. 

The next question is, how do you explain the book deal to all your friends and family who don’t know what you do for a living?

    kris- i have no cell phone.  (and you know i don’t have your # memorized) and out computers have some sort of worm.  EVERYTHING but the internet is cut.  and that is only working part-time.  (i wish i worked part-time)  this is my one and only chance to email.  to say, “hi.”  to remind you that you rock and to tell you my interview sucked.  she was mean, “how young are you; you’re still in school; two other LIBRARIANS are interviewing.”  but i rocked.  she sucked.  ok, i think they’re going to shut things down again… gotta go.  just wanted you to get some mail from me today.
