So, I started the new job last Monday (well, training, anyway), and I start at my new office next Monday. It's... hm. There have been ups and downs. Last Wednesday, I came home and cried. It was just a really bad day. But then Thursday, it was like everything came together. So more on that later, maybe.

Right now, I feel like doing a meme! I've been reading actual books a bit more lately, and I've been meaning to start reading even more. So I'm gonna do a meme in honor of that, and maybe I'll actually read some of the things I mean to read!

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well let's see.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)

100 Top Books of Awesome or In Some Cases Just Okay )

So... I get why they listed Chronicles of Narnia AND The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, because a lot of people have read the latter but not the former, but I feel weird counting it as two. Oh, well. I'm counting Chronicles as the other six.

Total: 18
Not bad, but not great. Definitely an incentive to start on the others that I'm intending to read and finish the two I've already started! I'm pretty sure there were two others that I read at some point, but I'm not positive about it, so I left them off. I don't think they should really count if I can't even remember for sure if I read them.
