Top 25 books sold in the last month

How many have you read?

Maybe now I can finally begin the healing from the hurt of Oprah's Book Club, since she put Anna Karenina on the list and it hit the top 25.

I've read 6-of-25, and no, The DaVinci Code isn't one of them. Unless by "read" you mean "wishing I could place in a large pile and ignite."

I haven't read a single one. I do, however, plan to buy and read the Sedaris book because that man is a hilarious genius. I'll also eventually read the Dark Tower book, as I recently read the first in that series and will be continuing on with it.

I liked Clinton as a president but there's no way I'm trudging through 900+ pages of him waxing on about himself.

The Da Vinci Code never sounded that interesting to me. Now that I've heard about it so much, it has entered the realm of My Big Fat Greek Wedding and The Passion of the Christ--I will not indulge them now not only because I'm uninterested, but also out of pure spite for having been subjected to hearing so damn much about them.

Haven't read a one and probably won't. I used to be an avid reader. Just don't seem have the interest anymore. Except, of course, for the Harry Potter books. Love 'em. Can't wait for the next.

Oh, and Dan, about that $25 fee... it's in the mail. ;->

Did you know that J.K. Rowling has announced the name of the next Potter book? Yep, it's "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince."

Whatever that means.
