Tagged by [livejournal.com profile] angelmischa. Here are my top 5 favorite books, that I can remember in my current state of extreme stress and beer induced wooziness. Due to said wooziness, they are in no particular order:

I won't tag anyone, but if you do it, ping me with a link, as I may be a bit busy this weekend.

I think this is a slightly different list than the one currently making the rounds, but I cannot make myself do the formatting required manually just now. But if anyone wants to see it, there it is. Maybe next year.

Yeah, Okay. I'll bite. Here's my list. Stuff I've read is bolded. Stuff I want to read is underlined. Stuff I read but couldn't finish is italicized and stuff I didn't like is strike through. ETA - I'm told * are for read more than once. I'll count those Started more than once, as well.

I can see a lot of stuff I never would have read but for class, mostly in high school. Also, it's got to really leave an impression for me to hate a book. I might give up on it, but that's a very different thing.

I've been trying lately to get myself to a place where I can read and get through James Joyce. As a concept his writing sounds fascinating-- using images and ideas almost like musical themes that recombine later in unexpected ways. But even though I can sometimes (with help) glimpse the structure, I can't muster the effort necessary to persevere. Maybe I need to find a lj community devoted to reading Joyce or something. Given the insanity in the world at large, there's doubtless such a group out here.

Scary how many of these I have never even heard of, too....
