And the Book Worm in Me is Put to Shame

Ok, so it's Friday and while I'm still at work my mind is already at the bar/club pounding multiple drinks and dancing my stressed little ass off. I figured I'd use the remaining 50 minutes of my day efficiently. And post a blog (of course).

I know it's just a meme but it keeps me entertained and gives you something to read so it's kinda win-win. Kinda.

What you do is take the following list of books (the top 106 marked most often as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users). Bold the ones you've read, italicize the ones you started but couldn't finish, X the ones you really sort of hated, put an asterisk next to the ones you've read more than once, and underline (or in my case do this <--- to ) the ones on your own personal To Be Read list (because I'm dumb and couldn't figure out how to underline on this thing.)

Ok I am totally lame (or maybe lazy right now =P << )

But I do want to let you know that I share that passion of reading with you.

Last night, I started the new book by Bill O'Reilly called, "A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity".

>> I have only had this book for a day and I can't put it down. It is really good and the guy in my opinion, is worth looking up.

Anyway I look forward to your blog on Monday!!

Share the details!
Have a good weekend :)
