Weird word verification:

Majaz said...

A bookkeedi.

:D

Okay that was corny, even for me.

But I can't help it. THIS word verification reads:

virread.

Is the blog world cosmically surreal or what!

Opinionated Jaahil said...

It's not so good, seeing how I'm supposed to be a literature student. Hmph=( Also, where're Woolf and Wilde and Wodehouse (yes I have a thing for the Ws)=\ and lots of others!
Word verification is always amusing!

i ve serious reservations against this list.
i mean it has so many of those pulp fiction thingummies in there. you, as a student of literature, shouldnt really go by this list.
and '22' may be quite good depending upon what exactly it is that you ve read.

Opinionated Jaahil said...

I know, I mean there's a lot of books here that I don't even want to read.. but then.. i doubt you have to read all 100 of them to be called "educated"=P

salman latif said...

AD said...

SOME FUCKER STOLE MY LIFE OF PI AND ISN'T RETURNING IT -_-

It's not quite the epitome of what you'd call "literary" but it's great nonetheless.
