neverwhere: (Default)
Because I don't have anything remotely interesting to say today, have a literary-themed meme:

List 10 books you have on your bookshelf that you think nobody else on your friends list has on theirs. (I didn't include First Editions or signed books, and I'm sure I didn't produce a particularly unique list. But I think the result is a rather good cross-section of my interests, and probably offers insight into my personality, which might be even better. :)

1) Courtesans and Fishcakes: The Consuming Passions of Classical Athens by James Davidson
2) The Arthur Trilogy by Kevin Crossley-Holland
3) The Witch Must Die: The Hidden Meaning of Faerie Tales by Sheldon Cashdon
4) The Queen's Conjurer: The Science and Magic of Dr. John Dee, Advisor to Elizabeth I by Benjamin Wolley
5) The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (but only because it isn't officially released until next week ;-)
6) Kimi wa Pet (complete manga series) by Ogawa Yayoi
7) The Dinosaur Heresies by (the brilliant) Dr Richard T Bakker ♥
8) Behind the Dolphin Smile by Richard O'Barry (The tragic history of the dolphins who played Flipper. *sniff*)
9) Life, and How to Survive it by John Cleese and Robin Skinner
10) The Harlot by the Side of the Road: Forbidden Tales of the Bible by Jonathan Kirsch (I highly recommend this to everyone, it's fascinating.)


Tomorrow the cable company is coming to install my new internet connection, HUZZAH! No more AOL dialup for me, thank the Great Green Arkleseizure. *grins*

And even better, on thursday [livejournal.com profile] ashfae and [livejournal.com profile] randomchris arrive from Edinburgh, wheee! I am so excited to see my best friend again, it's been three and a half years already since we were last together, and I am utterly beside myself with bounceyjoy and glee. Yayyyy. :)
