The one book that I absolutely cannot wait to get my pretty little hands on this week promises to be a very naughty read, so consider yourself warned! :)
Singapore Rebel: Searching for Annabel Chong by Gerrie Lim: Back in January 1995 in Los Angeles, California, a Singaporean pornstar named Annabel Chong took cultural rebellion to an extreme, on terms that had never been negotiated before. She was filmed having sex with a long receiving line of men, servicing them 251 times over a ten-hour period to set a new world record. While this was recorded as The World's Biggest Gangbang, and later scrutinized in the documentary film Sex: The Annabel Chong Story, many of its actual participants were completely cluelessas to the significance of such history being made. Now, Annabel's longtime friend and confidante, and bestselling author, Gerrie Lim revisits those events and re-examines those scenarios - to shed new light on her legend, to discover why such an enduring curiosity about her exists and to learn why she is still regarded in her own native Singapore as something akin to a mythological figure and an urban legend.This book, featuring many of the author's own conversations and correspondences with Annabel over the years, is the first serious inquiry into the fascinating persona of a seldom discussed, yet often secretly venerated, Asian celebrity.

Found this one while browsing through the new releases, and the cover immediately caught my eye. I always love peeking behind the kink to see what people are like outside the bedroom (or away from the camera's eye), and this one has me intensely curious.
