The Silmarillion (104)

To quote [livejournal.com profile] hsifyppah's song:

I fell asleep, reading the Silmarillion...

Alas, the rest of the words don't seem to be online, but it's a cute banjo tune..

What I find interesting is that it seems to be a mix of the 'Classic books' which everyone 'should' read (and yet often people don't, unless assigned in class) with the New Bestsellers (or at least the really popular last year books, which I suspect people were either given or haven't gotten around to yet.)

Not really surprising. What I found most interesting was how many I'd read.
