First, from Lurker Stephanie: did you know romance novels make exemplary tools for self defense? Oh, yes indeedy do!
I am currently reading Charlaine Harris’ latest Sookie Stackhouse novel, From Dead to Worse and on page 146 the heroine, Sookie, uses a Nora Roberts hardback book to take down a bad guy! And I quote,
“He spun, pushed Barbara at Alcee, and ran right toward me, knife raised. I threw a Nora Roberts hardback at him, whacking him upside his head. I extended my foot. Blinded by the impact of the book, Sharp Teeth tripped over the foot, just as I’d hoped.”
I shall never leave the house unarmed (i.e. without a Nora Roberts hardback) again!
Screw high heels or car keys. Get yourself a hardback. You’ll never be bored waiting in line, and if a monster goes after you, chuck it at his hairy, toothy head!
And from Amy, When Candy Goes Wrong – the high fructose corn syrup variety, not the Malaysian kind. I need to find me some of these, stat.
