I know you're still curious: remember the book vs. DVD request poll I posted last month? Results are in: the 8 (versus 39) others of you who chose book win an imaginary prize set, as The Hunger Games arrived today. I'm next in line for the DVD, but it isn't due back until the 18th. Never underestimate the power of many copies versus the few. To celebrate, a new poll:


Did you watch the Grammys?

Yes (on TV or via other means)
2(3.5%)
Part of it
7(12.3%)
Just some clips online
6(10.5%)
Not at all
42(73.7%)

Will you watch the Oscars?

Yes - all of it
6(10.5%)
Part of it
3(5.3%)
Maybe
11(19.3%)
Probably not
20(35.1%)
No way
17(29.8%)

How many books have you read cover to cover so far this year?

0
4(7.0%)
0, but I'm working on one
12(21.1%)
1 or 2
10(17.5%)
3-5
15(26.3%)
6-10
7(12.3%)
11+
9(15.8%)

Do books that you've already read 9000 times count? And while I don't watch any TV, I don't really read a whole lot either, don't have the attention span for new books.

I feel a touch depressed after answering the last question, seeing my cover to cover book count is awfully low so far (excluding comic books, which I didn't include in my answer). I really must try harder to fit time for reading into my schedule. Besides, it's good for me; reading always lifts my spirits.

I'll be skipping through ads and acceptance speeches of people I don't like or have no reason to congratulate. (Don't know them, the movie, etc.)

7 books so far, reading the 8th. :)

I've only read that many books because I bought myself a Kindle for Xmas. <3 Otherwise I'd probably be reading the same book over and over again still (Hitchhiker's Guide... never gets old).

I just bought the set of The Hunger Games books. I haven't started reading them yet, though.

Most award shows are boring to me, so I didn't watch the Grammys at all and probably won't watch any of the Oscars, either.

No Grammys, no Oscars, 11+ books. Majority of books were crappy erotica, but still books.
