i LOVE to read. ironic that i have read almost nothing on the list. apparantly, i've been reading all the wrong books ;)

as for the movies, although i was shocked at how many i DID see, there are still a ton i feel behind on. and NO, i have not seen any of the Godfather movies, nor Goodfellas. NO, i haven't seen, nor read, any harry potter (or harry potty, as i originally accidentally typed!). i must be one of THEE last people on the PLANET that has done neither. and NO, i have not seen the first to Alien movies all the way through. and i have also NOT viewed A Clockwork Orange, One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest, nor Apocolypse Now, 2001: a space odyssy, or American History X. Would i like to SEE these movies? yes.

someday :)

Re:
The only Austen I didn't like was Emma. And for that one, I was never able to like the main character.
