Reading in the boudoir

Tidying my room, these were the books I discovered kicking around on my floor:

Elinor M. Brent-Dyer, Gay Lambert at the Chalet School
H. P. Lovecraft, Omnibus 1: At the Mountains of Madness
Anaïs Nin, Delta of Venus
Jacqueline Wilson, Vicky Angel
Glen David Gold, Carter Beats the Devil
Pauline Réage, Story of O
Dorita Fairlie Bruce, Dimsie Moves Up
Sue Cowley, Guerilla Guide to Teaching
The Marquis de Sade, Philosophy in the Boudoir
Stanley Fish, Is there a Text in this Class?
Charlotte Yonge, The Little Duke
Mrs Molesworth, Hoodie
Robert Hughes, Culture of Complaint: the fraying of America
Amante P. Marinas, Pananandata Guide to Knife Throwing

So, y'know, I'm trying not to imagine what would happen if these books got together and merged into one grotesque composite ... but all the same, I can't quite shake off the idea of de Sade, Réage, Nin and Lovecraft collaborating on "Through the Gates of the Chalet School".
