"The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed."
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you really love and strike through the ones you hate!

The List )

There are several ginormous moths siphoning kitchen light from the safety of our backdoor, by ginormous I mean, I think Volkswagen may be marketing a new line.

I finished my new copy of Shadows Return, Lynn Flewelling's fourth Nightrunner book.

I'm disappointed and satisfied, I'm like a crescent roll of conflicting emotions.

- There's the delicious flaky crust, which is the more romantic moments between the main characters.

- There's the burnt bottom, unless you enjoy that sort of thing and I don't, which is a surprising lack of detail compared to the first three books. I felt like I was reading an intro to a much longer novel. IE "Characters are traveling, characters are kidnapped, characters escape to warn people. The end." *Blink* Where's the rest. This is not altogether a bad thing since I would buy Lynn Flewelling's post-it notes, if she were to publish them. (Oh and the creepy dragon *thing is really cute, I want one. As a pet.) *I'm not going to elaborate since this is a spoiler free post.

- There's the gooey middle bit, which is the fact that Seregil has hair well below his shoulders, despite that fact that it's highly impractical for a thief to have a gorgeous mane of flowing dark "grab a-hold and strangle" trailing behind him like a streamer in the night. I would like to sincerely thank Lynn for ignoring this impracticality.

- There's the buttery goodness, which is to say I was really scared of the possibility of mpreg by the summery on the back of the book, however the situation is handled in a unique and non-nausea inducing way that does not involve any sort of human orifices or antacid use on the part of the reader.

I know there are a lot of "books you should read" and "movies you should watch before you die" cluttering every corner of the net but one of my personal favorite is is a list of 1001 influential books that everyone should read at some point in their life.

I've only read about 10 of these books myself, but I'd like to make a personal goal to read all of the books on this list sometime before I die. If you're less ambitious than I am, maybe a 100 will cut it?

Do you think they're missing anything, what would you add to the list?

I can honestly say this was the best April fools day prank ever:

Dad grabbed tickets to see the Boss a few months ago, so we went down to the U.S. Bank Arena last night. Bruce put on a pretty good show. At one point he hauled a young girl up on stage to dance with him and swung her around a bit. They didn't take a single break, he and his E Street Band played for about two hours. We got there a bit early and I forgot to pack a book, but there was some guy down in the front row who looked just like Toki Wartooth, so I spent about an hour before the show watching him walk around with my binoculars. xD

OMG, it's raining! I want to go outside.

Wait I have that power...

Do you guys think Cincinnati rain is acid rain?
What's your favorite type of weather?

I want interesting reasons too like... "Kelly, my favorite is rain because you get to see idiots tire-spin in the mud while you throw baking soda and vinegar into rain puddles! YEA.

Have you ever had one of those days where you'd rather shove your head in a sausage grinder than suffer another minute of vomit inducing migraine pain? If I keep getting these headaches I'm probably going to end up like my grandmother one day, going full speed in twenty directions with no destination. I only hope I end up at Mord Haus getting the boot, hard style, instead of diving under cars with the conviction that the U.S. government's after my aluminum foil covered love letters. Outty.

Do not waste your money on Cloverfield!
No plot, no point, no explanation.

This stinker is filled with teenage morons who somehow convince the U.S. Army that they should be allowed back into a city full of monsters in order to save the stoically hard-headed male lead's one night stand. One girl is running around the destroyed city in high heels, you think they'd issue her a pair of boots, I'm sure there's a shoe store in that mall somewhere.

What the lack of cinematography really means is that there's someone swinging a fucking camera around, like a disoriented idiot for an hour and a half, in an attempt to completely nauseate the viewing audience with the "stunning realism" of the piece. If that's your idea of artistic genius, by all means invest your time and money in this piece of crap movie.
