Of the BBC Book Meme variety. Because I am a lemming, I have to imitate the cool kids. Except I'm late bloomer, too; so by the time I make myself follow all my little lemming buddies, they are already off the cliff. Which actually makes me the lucky one, right? Because the I can just turn back and go home. ;)
