    DD my boy; such an overused meme did cross my mind; but I refused to use it for such a thing.
    And the only reason my List isn't far higher than that is that a series counts as one book/entry; an author (except where he or she writes multiple series) counts as one book/entry and I limit it to book shops I can easily access.

    If I really had my Ultimate Book Wish List it would be well over 2 000 books. I mean, two series alone I want to geet (and is on my List despite the books being seemingly out of print are over 200 books each).
    And it just increases daily.
    If I could speak to everyone in person and recite all the books I have on my Ultimate List we'd be there for well over four hours.

    My book list increases daily.
    And every time I get a new set of shelves, they somehow expand to fill it and I have no more room than I did when I started...

    *gets back to Spanish homework*

    Though technically it's *listening* Spanish homework, meaning I have to listen to an audio clip and then write stuff down in the correct order, etc. It's pretty easy, though, and I can do other things at the same time. MUAHAHA.

    Hear! Hear! Legos are surely the most awesome children's toy ever invented(even if it was by a little old lady in Leningrad.)

    Also, the catmuffins are getting to me. Shortly I will start munching on random cats I see on the street, and that can't be healthy.

    I'm finding that, as I get older in the last couple years, my book list has shrunk and radically changed focus. Where I used to enjoy fantasy/sci-fi novels and classical literature immensely, almost everything on my reading list anymore is non-fiction.

    Biographies and popular science account for the vast majority of books I'm reading these days, with the occasional Pratchett novel thrown in. In fact, I recently realized that I have almost no desire to read non-Pratchett fiction. When a friend suggests a book to me, my initial reaction is almost always 'ugh, why would I want to read that?'

    Anyone else experience this kind of shift in literary tastes?

    Edit: of course, I say that while ravenously chowing down on everything written in the 'shipping thread...

    Lego is Danish. ... The Danes are generally full of win though; nearly as full of win as the crazy damn Finns.

    Yep. I'm really fussy about what I read now, but that's just a subsection of my general grumpy old git-ness.

    Won't touch generic fantasy/game fiction with a bargepole recently ("Song of Interminable and Fail" was the last straw). I'm also picky about my sci-fi ("Anathem"? *thumbdown*), and about 'literary' fiction (looking at you "Mr Norrell & Jonathan Strange").

    Life is too short to waste reading crap books.

    What's on my bedside table recently: Orwell, Mieville, Dumas, (Tad) Williams. Re-readable standbys while I await the next Pratchett.

    Given the grittiness of Martin's books, Sandor Clegane gets to commit far more monstrous deeds than Ingen Jegger in the whole of Memory, Sorrow and Thorn. But Jegger was a fanatic and far more dangerous than Clegane, who's just a thug. Even when he's standing over Ineluki's mother and about to be peppered with so many arrows that he's going to resemble a porcupine, he uses his last breaths just to **** with Simon's head and send him into a killing rage.

    That's dedication.

    As for Ineluki ... he was frickin' terrifying. I got the feeling throughout the books that he was always just a hair's breadth from total victory, and that it was only by immense luck that the good guys won at all.

    So, I got a question guys.

    I've rarely had people get angry at me when face to face, even my mother who can verbally tear apart people for the slightest mistakes rarely gets mad at me.

    Recently, I've been getting a few clues as to why that is, it seems that I have some sort of effect on people that it is actually hard for them to get mad at me.

    Now, I was wondering, is this some sort of natural charisma?

    It's because you're such a big-eyed cutesy-pie of course; no-one can stay mad at you.
