Today we have our second ever guest post from a stranger on the internet Bad Books, Good Times regular reader! E. H. Taylor wrote us a series of classified ads – BBGT style! Hopefully you enjoy her riffing as much as we did as she tears apart every book we’ve read on this blog with fantastic efficiency! Except for Hush, Hush. Nobody remembers what happened in Hush, Hush.
