Boredom Combat: Ian Fleming's James Bond Series

Living in a fairly small town is hard work. Boredom comes very easily for anyone (ask them, they'll see), and having fun things to do is hard to come up with.
That's why I'm here-- having to wonder all the time is quite challenging, not to mention strenous. I'll find something fun, and post it so you can try for yourself. You might enjoy it, you might not-- if you didn't, at least you killed time!

Just a few days ago, I was at the library, getting books for term paper sources. I decided to have fun in the fiction section and stumbled upon something I always knew existed, but never took the time to delve into-- a copy of the first James Bond novel by Ian Fleming, Casino Royale, in a very sexy pulp design*. I borrowed it, unspeakably eager to read it.
Needless to say, I devoured that shit.
I can't believe I'd never tried these before! Anyone who hasn't really should try it. It kills so much time that it happens to kill time you probably should've used doing something else. So much fun, I highly recommend it!

But TAKE NOTE: in order to read these, one must have an open mind. Fleming is notorious for his sexism and racism, especially in what I'm reading now, the stereotype-latent Live and Let Die (not to mention You Only Live Twice). Don't take it too seriously, have fun with it-- that's what they're made for!

*The 007 series published in pulpy covers are very praiseworthy and I've found really, really fit in with the book. These covers, designed by Richie Fahey, are so much fun to look at, which you can right here.
