The banned books meme...

There is no way this is a list of banned books. Who would ban James and the Giant Peach??! Hoooey...

- Bold the ones you've read.
- Italicize the ones you've read part of.
- Underline the ones you specifically want to read (at least some of).
- Read more. Convince others to read some.

Like barahirion, I didn't bother with the underlining bit.

Looking at the list, it occurs to me that I am a great procrastinator and partial-reader of books. How depressing. And the sad thing is that I actually remember next to nothing of half the books that I have read. I mean, I can remember some of the key plot thingies and maybe some of the weird things in them (like when the girl gives birth on the other woman in Atwood's A Handmaid's Tale)... or when the dude goes to the doctor in ...Ivan Denisovich, but that's about it. And I actually read those ones from cover to cover. I imagine I know even less of the ones that I read half of. And also, it's a strange thing when you read and write and talk so much about literature that you know basically what happened in half the ones that you haven't read. I'm not sure if that's good. It could possibly be bad. I'm pretty sure it is.

Read more. That would be good. I realize that my appetite for reading has gone down down down in recent years. I blame the internet. And the study of Literature. I used to like literature a lot more before I started studying it. I used to like movies a lot more before I started analyzing film too.

With all the news of upcoming weddings in my family, the most common question people ask me now is:

"So, when's your turn?"

Complete with silly grins.
