12349876: /and all the other really short children's books

Hell I read 5 or six of those a day. Out loud.

I think the guy in the next cubicle really enjoys it. He'd say something of he didn't, right?

Can I just listen to Samuel L. Jackson read "Go the f*ck to sleep" every day?  Does that count?

lilistonic:  I go through Austen and Trollope regularly, to name two, and I really dig Edwardian and Jazz Age authors.
So, I'm inspired by the guy. If I inspire anyone here in turn, even better. If not, I can live with it. ;-)

You've inspired me.  This year, I resolve to visit Austin and pick up some trollops.

foxyshadis: I found out recently that every three days of Fark time equals one book

Bears repeating. I love this site, but damn is it a time suck. Right after the election I stayed completely off FARK and Facebook for a full week to purge my head of bullshiat. The purpose wasn't to be more productive...that was an unexpected side effect.

Then the holidays hit, and I had spare time on my hands, so I'm back here pushing the lever again and again and again.

I already read Facebook every day. Doesn't everyone? Or is there some other kind of:"book"?
