booklist 2009

Talking about reading, 2008's booklist is a shame. I only managed 61 books. And I'm pretty sure, this year it will even be less. Not to mention that it included way to little university stuff, which for once results from the fact that I barely read the complete book but only seperate chapters, but also proves that I'm simply not doing enough. But this isn't meant to be another "I'm not dedicated enough" rant, I'm pretty sure this year will hold enough of them even if I don't start right now.

Anyway, this is the start of the new list, so come in and enjoy.

books. i love books. thanks for posting such a marvelous list.
:) well I used to read a lot more when I was younger and had more time. my father used to say I didn't read my book, but ate them. sorta true.

and yes, loved extremely loud & incredibly close, too. one of my favourite lines: love me, because love doesn't exist and I have tried everything that does .
got that one on my "have to read" list, but didn't yet get around reading it.
and this year will certainly not see me doing much pleasure reading, it's thesis and exam time ^^
*lol* yeah. haven't seen the movie either since I'm not very fond of elijah wood... but funny enough, I DO see him when I read the title of the book. call that successful marketing for the movie...
I hate frodo with a passion, so elijah wood playing him didn't excactly help ^^
I actually haven't seen many movies with him, my disliking probably is linked to him playing frodo. that has formed a link in my mind I cannot get around anymore.
I don't really know. probably because he's so emo... I never liked him in the books, but I can't excactly name reasons. I like Pippin ^^
The Good Son kind of rings a bell but haven't seen it. I wasn't much of a movie person till one or two years ago.
yeah and also this "I have to bear the worlds greatest burden on my shoulder, but no, I wont allow you to help, it's too dangerous" ... blaaaaaah. whatever.
Pippin rocks.
I read LOTR once, but it's impossible for me to re-read it. it's to boring really. I'm amazed at Tolkiens ability to make up such a complex story, I'm amazed at the charakters but there are passages in the book that just get me fall asleep very very fast ^^

Having Billy Boyd read it sounds brilliant... let's go organize that, I'm sure we find some more fans of this idea ;)
hehe. accents are an unfair thing, the totally make me go nuts and I think people shouldn't be able to make me grin madly by just TALKING...

I started to reread the books about three or four times, always gave about after about 50 pages. however, I read them in german and I'm determined to read them in english, too. so one day...
I'm really glad we don't! how boring that would be if everyone just sounded the same.
and well, you can't have it all, obviously. maybe send him to ireland for a while to re-train his accent? ;)
^^ Well I don't know. I suck at recognizing accents, all I can do is tell you whether I like it or not. I couldn't really place people by listening to them. But what I can say for sure is that I prefer british english to american english. While I like both, the british accent just wins. Unfortunately, watching tv series and most movies gave me more of an american accent, a fact I'm not too happy about. but what can you do.
The only dutch girl I remember speaking english with sounded like an australian... which was funny because she was constantly mistaken for being from down under and was puzzled about it every time. wonder what she sounds like nowadays since she moved to south africa *g*

I guess you got terrible accents in every language, it's the same in german.
^^ see. different language, same problem. well. I mean, I guess I get by pretty well with my english, but recognizing accents is a different story.
