Omtale: Hot for Words
"Hot for Words" combines the enticing stories behind everyday words, erotic or not, with even more enticing, never-before-seen, full-colour photos of Marina as she teaches us about words she loves. From 'blurb' to 'booby,' 'humble pie' to 'hooker,' 'floccinaucinihilipilification' to 'f---,' not a single one of Marina's lessons on English word origins is boring. Organised like the high school curriculum you wish you'd had, Marina takes students from Homeroom (The Bare Essentials) to Phys Ed (Uniforms Optional), History (Fully Exposed!), Science (The Laws of Attraction), Detention (You've Been Naughty), and more. Along the way, she provides pop quiz questions and interactive, online extra credit opportunities to fully engage readers. With full-colour photos throughout; a flirty, modern design; and tons of interesting trivia and information, there is no book in this category that is more entertaining, appealing, or fun.
