Grimod de la Reyniere wanted to give some readers a truly memorable experience while promoting his book, Reflections on Pleasure, so he invited them to dinner, locked them in a hall, and insulted them for hours on end while black-robed waiters placed plates of food on top of a catafalque-turned-table. His book enjoyed multiple printings. Infamous book promotions through history.
I like words. Who doesn’t?
Pretty and practical bookshelf with built-in ladder.
DID YOU LEAVE BECAUSE OF MY ATTIC WIFE
IS THAT WHAT THIS IS ABOUT
BECAUSE MY HOUSE IN FRANCE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE AN ATTIC
IF THAT’S WHAT YOU WERE WORRIED ABOUT
IT HAS A CELLAR THOUGH SO YOU KNOW
DON’T CROSS ME
HAHA I’M ONLY JOKING
