"What we have here is the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded. Bold the ones you've read, underline the ones you read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish. Here's the twist: add (*) beside the ones you liked and would (or did) read again or recommend. Even if you read 'em for school in the first place."

Harry Potter, Interrupted

Jeff's HP post (contains spoilers)

Jul. 23rd, 2007

I'm so easily pleased

Today I got a package from India via registered mail. I assume it contains some wall hangings I bought on eBay, but I don't know for sure because I don't want to open the package. It's wrapped in cloth, like on the outside, and the printing is elegant but looks like it was done by someone who doesn't get a lot of practice writing. It's actually sewn closed with a lovely blanket stitch, and the corners are sealed with red wax.

Jul. 22nd, 2007

Okay, here's what I was looking for

Very spoilery, very in-depth: Harry Potter and the Liveblogging All-Nighter
