What does Kitty have to say?


 


Every book I've ever read

Did you know that Art Garfunkel has a list of every book he's read, starting in 1968, and going all the way through 2009? He not only has such a list, it's on his website! It starts in June, 1968 with The Confessions, by Jean Jacques Rousseau, and concludes with I Feel Bad About By Neck, by Nora Ephron, in September, 2009. That got me to thinking, what would my list of books look like, had I kept a list? I definitely read a lot more when I was younger, went through the Trixie Belden phase, and read just about every mystery that Scholastic Book Service ever published, countless biographies of famous women, and quite a few books about unexplained phenomena. I went through by Beatle book phase, reading authorized and unauthorized accounts of their rise to fame. (The Stevens Point Public Library had a pretty slim collection on the topic, so it didn't take long). I read a lot of Victoria Holt gothic novels, my share of Sidney Sheldon and Jackie Collins' bodice rippers, and even a few classics. The last book I read was Room by Emma Donohue, which was great, albeit dark and disturbing, at least for the first half. I certainly don't wish I still had all those books..the ones I kept already take up too much space. But I kind of wish I would have kept a list (for my own records, not to bore the world with on the internet.) I have a feeling there would be some surprises on there. And  I'd love to  compare and contrast my list with Art Garfunkel's. We have read some of the same books (A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court and The DaVinci Code, for example). But it may be a while before I get around to reading The Art of Courtly Love, or The Strawberry Statement. Check out Mr. Garfunkel's list here.

World's Worst iPod: Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...
