The Tireless Ron Jeremy

2008_01_RonJeremybook.jpegMaybe we watch too much porn in our downtime to expand our professional achievements, but apparently Ron Jeremy doesn't. The adult film actor/reality show star/pianist/college lecturer/comedian has taken on a new slash: writer. His memoir, Ron Jeremy: The Hardest (Working) Man in Showbiz, chronicles the lengthy star's career, err, we mean the star's lengthy career, in which he's so far starred in more than 1,750 adult films and directed more than 135.

So if you need something to heat you up while you're out in the cold tonight, Mr. Jeremy will be reading from and signing his book at the Michigan Ave Borders. We 're told he will be fully clothed, which at 54 we're thankful for, but we are looking forward to what Publisher's Weekly says is just like Jeremy, "self-effacing, affably vulgar, eager-to-please and constantly on the run."

Tonight. 7 p.m. Borders. 830 N. Michigan Ave. Free
