Books!

I'm obsessed with books. We are drowning under the weight of our book collection. So when I saw this meme somewhere I had to do it!

Meme instructions : Look at the list of books below. Bold the ones you've read, italicize the ones you might read, cross out the ones you won't, underline the ones on your book shelf, and place parentheses around the ones you've never even heard of. (I'm having a fight with Blogger and can't get it to underline, so I will mark them as GOT instead of underlining)

The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown - GOT
The Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger -GOT
The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - Douglas Adams - GOT
The Great Gatsby - F.Scott Fitzgerald - GOT
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee

Ha! Now it's naughty Dan Brown, the alleged plagiarist, LOL.
One of these days, you'll have to somehow let go of being the librarian of your own library, and get to use someone elses - takes up less room in the house. And as every librarian knows, other librarians are just the WORST people for having overdues, so you get to support your local library by paying lots of fines, as well as your rates. Still, it's cheaper than owning your own!!

The reason I'm not using the local library at the moment is because of the amount of iverdue fines I owe!!!

As for the plagiarism case - given that The Holy BLood and The Holy Grail is supposed to be factual (yes, I have read it), how can he be plagiarising it! Can you plagiarise history? I have noticed journalistst here (well, telly journalists) referring to THBATHG as fiction too!!
