Supposedly, according to the BBC, most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here.
List )

What can be deduced from this is that a) yes I have in fact read far more than 6 of these(tallying, I've read 51 out of 100) and b) I don't much care for most contemporary fiction. I have zero desire to read most of the high profile must-reads that have come out in recent years. Also, that many 19th century authors depress the crap out of me and therefore I won't read them and c) I don't have nearly enough time to read anymore.

Posting 5 odd things about myself:

1. I don't eat condiments. No mayo, no mustard, no relish, no ketchup.

2. My socks have to be pulled up then folded over precisely or they just don't feel right.

3. I can't stand it if there's things flashing in my system tray on my computer. I start to feel panicky if I don't answer IMs almost right away and I have to gag things like auto-db-saves on various games so they don't kick off the flashing in the toolbar and make me start to feel fluttery.

4. I will only wear wool if there's a layer of cotton between me and it.

5. I have food texture issues. I don't like crunchy and smooth mixed together with rare exceptions and thus will not eat cookies with nuts in them, tuna with celery in it, crunchy peanut butter and various other foods that blend textures. My paranoia about winding up eating class or bits of bone or sand kicks off when I feel things go crunch under my teeth when the rest of the food is smooth.

I'm not going to tag specific people, but please feel free to post in your own LJs.

In a further bid to quiet the agita in my spirit today, I took this quiz seen at [ profile] rosmar's LJ.
