I said READ dance bliss. Not eggplant sandwich dance bliss.

I've read about twenty of the 75 books every woman should read list compiled over at jezebel.com (and brought to my attention by editorial ass). I do, however, own at least five more, so I can pretend I'll get to reading those eventually...

Similar to moonrat, I have read about 15 of Esquire's list for men.

I did, however, read quite a few books in 2008, possibly more than my usual 5o-ish-or-on-average-one-a-week. I'll post a little year-end-round-up soon, I think. I can tell you right now that Three Cups of Tea is not going as fast as I might like and that I'm going to give in and read Twilight in the next couple of days - Kenneth and Paige, we do have a movie date, right?

A book a week? Oh, man. I can barely read all my emails in a week. I'm impressed.

I've only read two of the books on the Esquire list. And my counting was a little muddled, but I think I read seven books of the Jezebel list.
According to my blog's sidebar, I have read 18 books this year. That's HUGE for me. hahah.

I'm going to leave a second comment here because when I heard this on the news today, I instantly thought of your "egg salad" post, so here's some egg salad for you:

A fire station burned to the ground... for the second time.
