Since I am a librarian (well, unemployed …) I thought I would answer the latest meme circulating. Here goes — the books you’ve read, the ones you might read, ***the ones of which you saw the movie, %the ones on your bookshelf, and (the ones you’ve never even heard of):

    Wow. If you don’t read Good Omens soon, I’m firing you as a friend! Hahah, joking! Kinda…that book rocks. I also liked the Pullman trilogy, but that’s not necessarily a must read like Good Omens.
