And here is where I steal another meme…

I was twittering again and came across a blog of awesomeness.  While thumbing through some pages, I found this intellectual, I can make myself feel better about my intellectualness or maybe give myself another thing to feel guilty about cause I’ve read only a quarter of these books so I’m not really an intellectual, listing of books.  I’m just saying.  But why not give it a go!  So when you’re done reading mine, copy the Key & List from here and then paste into your own space… be it myspace or blog or what have you. Don’t forget to change your answers. Otherwise we’d be like twins or something, OMG!  

 
Key

  • Bold the books you have already read
  • Italicize the books you intend to read
  • My commentary in parenthenses for your enjoyment.  Cause I got something to say about it, ‘K.
