Ten Things I’ve Read That You Probably Haven’t

I saw John Scalzi’s famous Ten Things You’ve Done Other People Probably Haven’t blog post linked off Andrea Kail’s blog a couple weeks ago. Many people’s lists I read were full of encounters with celebrities, or crazy (and drunken!) feats.

I’ve never met any big celebrities, and when I drink my coordination gets even worse than usual, so I don’t have many neat escapades that few other people have done. My uniqueness I think comes from inside that strange enclave of my own mind. So I came up with a better list for well-read, uncoordinated drunks like me. :)

Here are Ten Things I’ve Read That You Probably Haven’t:

Light in August
Suldrun’s Garden
The Dragon Waiting
The Armageddon Rag
The Military Revolution of Sixteenth-Century Europe
The Guts to Try
Hornblower and the Hotspur
Where Eagles Dare
Your Code Name Is Jonah

Well, maybe not that last one. :) And I haven’t finished Armageddon Rag yet. But I bet few people out there have read more than two or three off this list.

I’d love to see other peoples’ lists, and see how few of their electic ten I’ve read. If you read them while performing a drunken stunt, all the better!

    Ulysses, check. Suldrun’s Garden, check. Hornblower and the Hotspur, check. In fact, I’ve read all the Hornblower novels. Geek!

    Or perhaps just geekly well-read! :)

    My writing buddy Jay posted his own list on his blog. He’s a doctoral student in military history, so he’s read tons of weird stuff. But that history of headsmen book looks pretty cool!
