These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded. Bold the ones you've read, italicize the ones you own but have not read.Read more...Collapse )



I've been scheduled to work until 6 pm tomorrow; normally I work until 5 pm on Thursdays because I have my running group at 6. So, no running group for me tomorrow. It might not make a difference, as I have a sore knee and have been thinking that if it's not feeling much better by tomorrow, I'll skip running and swim instead. But still, just knowing that I can't run with my group tomorrow even if it is better is discouraging. Stupid job.


Quote for the Day

From Dead Like Me, Season 2:

Daisy: "Do you know what the Holy Trinity is, George?"
Rube: "We're in a fucking restaurant. It's peppers, onions, and celery."


Among my Christmas gifts this year I got two DVD sets: Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me, Season 2. (I've been on a Bryan Fuller kick lately; if you haven't been watching Pushing Daisies, you should. Seriously. But I digress.) I watched Disc One of Wonderfalls on New Year's Day, and decided to watch Disc 2 this afternoon, as I'm too wiped out after my 9.5 mile run (which was supposed to be 8 miles, but we missed a turn and had to backtrack) to do much else. I popped in the DVD, and was encountered with the same episode titles I had watched on Tuesday. Huh, weird. Popped it out, took a look at the label--yep, Disc One. Looked back in the DVD case for Disc 2, and saw that one was also labeled Disc One. How. Annoying.

Here's hoping my mom saved the receipt.

Via Second-Order Approximation... PETER JACKSON SIGNS A DEAL TO PRODUCE THE HOBBIT MOVIE!!! And a sequel. Not sure if that means they're breaking up the movie into two parts, or if they'll make events from the appendices into a sequel, but who cares? It's FINALLY more than just speculation. W00T!:-)


Winter storm warning? What winter storm warning? I LAUGH at your winter storm warning. Then, I brush 6 inches of snow off my car, drive 40 minutes to the metropark to meet the equally insane (and aptly named) mightymezzo73, and go running in your winter storm warning. 5.36 miles. Because as a comic strip the mighty one recently posted on her blog states: "there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes."
