The quest for new reading material

So, despite having quite an extensive list of books on my 'to-be-read' list I am, still, forever on the lookout for great books to add to it. I found a great site for book recommendations called Flashlight Worthy and wanted to give them a bit of a shout-out to celebrate them achieving 10,000 twitter followers.

I am a total list maker, so I love the list based format of the site as it helps to find books that are exactly what I'm looking for. They have 383 lists that are so different, and even a little strange sometimes, that you can't help but be pulled in. What a book about mother/daughter relationships? Yeah, there's a list for that. How about Books with Wordless Covers or you can sink your literary teeth into the LOST book club now that the show is over.

Head on over, check it and get your own book recommendations to add to your list.

One of the best books I read during the past year was a Vietnamese one from the 1930's called Dumb Luck by Vu Trong Phung. I had to read it for a Vietnamese history course in the Fall. I doubt you would find it on any lists, but it was a brutally funny satire that I really enjoyed.

Also, your site doesn't work properly now. The word verification box for comments gets cutoff and you have to tab around the site to get it to show up again.

Thanks for letting me know. I got bored and decided to try out a new template and now I'm wondering if it's not more trouble than it's worth. I'll mess around with it and see if I can't get it fixed.

Ok, this should work better now. Of course I tried a million different things before realizing I could fix the problem with a simple check of a box. That'll teach me to mess with things when I'm sleep deprived and my brain isn't functioning.

I take it that as you're trying to read the 1001 list, you have your copy of v4 of the spreadsheet, right?

If not, head over to HERE for your copy.
