    I'm surprised at the number of classics on that list. Also odd that Holes appeared as #13 and #25.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    I'm surprised that Atkins-related books were 4 of the top 12. Actually, I'm not so much surprised as I am saddened. Mainly because I wasn't in his will.

    I'm surprised I wasn't interviewed for #36. They must've run out of time or something. *clears throat*

    I was thinking the same thing about #33 for myself.
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    What I find interesting is that there are 3 "classics" still selling a ton of books (Woolf, Salinger, Lee)... I wonder if it's because schools are teaching them so widespread or if because people are genuinely interested in wanting to read them.

    Y'all are crazy!

    I'm surprised that Seuss's best-seller this year was "Oh the Places You'll Go" and not "Green Eggs and Ham"

    That's what I was talking about, Hazy. The Great Gatsby's on that list, too. I wonder how many volumes were talking about to make that list. You're probably right, though, that it's due to school requirements.

    Oh, I didn't even see that Paulie (your post or Gatsby).

    That's the only thing I can think of, because it's not like they are talked about in mainstream culture.
