God, I couldn't even begin to list all the books I read last year. Maybe I should keep track this year. Already I'm on my 8th book, since the year started. I'm a reading fiend! :D

8 books in ten days? You must have a hell of a lot of free time or read really short books!

I really don't have a lot of free time, but I do tend to read fast when I have a book I really like and I've picked some good ones lately. And most were 300-400 pages long. I like to read. Especially when I'm eating. :D

Really good idea....i might yoink it actually.

Have you seen the movie: The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys? I quite like it.

Seen it? I own it! Couldn't wait for it to come out. Its good - different, but good - better in some ways, I think. Many movie adaptations don't even come close to standing up to the book, but this one's pretty successful I think!

oh, and what do you think of Miss MIsery? I have an advance copy that's got some like pop music cd with it. I keep looking at it thinking i should break it open, but i havne't gotten there yet.

Love it. I'm only about 1/3rd through it, but its really good. I'm reviewing it for one of the mags I shoot and write for, but didn't get the cd. I figured I'd track down the songs that are mentioned that I'm not already familiar with...

do you want the tracklisting? or i could burn you a copy of it if you wish.

a track list would be cool if you've got the time/energy to type it up!
