Books Books Books

Okay, so since it's late on Friday and I'm up and Maggie's not, I'm gonna take the topic this week and make her come up with one next week.

And I wanna talk about books. Big surprise, right? I always want to talk about books.

So, recently, an internet friend of mine showed me this amazing, massive, two-month-long Book Meme that is amazing and I'm totally gonna get around to it on Tumblr at some point. Now, don't worry. I am gonna post the whole thing here, but I am not going to make you fill the whole thing out. That would be madness, and none of us have the time.

Rather, I would like you to look over the list and pick THREE (or five or ten or however many you feel like tackling, but let's try for three) "days" to talk about, in some amount of depth. I want more than just a title; I want some whys and wherefores to your decisions. :)

All right! Here goes!
