In your [blog] list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way! Don’t take more than a few minutes and don’t think too hard. They do not have to be the “right” books or great books of literature, just something that has affected you in some way.
Yet another meme that’s been going around Facebook. Though not tagged specifically to join in, this one did strike my fancy. I’ve been a reader pretty much my whole life, and though I may not have been to the library lately that part of my identity hasn’t changed.1 I’m putting this out as a blog post, though, because simply listing the books felt unsatisfying. I want to talk about why they’ve stuck with me.
So, the other day I came across this episode of Dinosaur Comics, and although the comic is just OK, the title text (mouseover) has a great idea. To instantly make any movie title that much more awesome, just add “Friggin’”!
Lord of the Friggin’ Rings, Across the Friggin’ Universe, The Right Friggin’ Stuff, 2001: A Friggin’ Space Odyssey
It works on books, too!
A Wizard of Friggin’ Earthsea, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Friggin’ Secrets, Speaker for the Friggin’ Dead, Crime and Friggin’ Punishment
And other things…
