It's a Tweet Eat Tweet World...

There are two kinds of people in this world, those who love Twitter, and those who don't realize MySpace died of dysentery a couple of years ago.  In addition to getting useful news, information and updates, along with stuff we don't really care about (ie, Lindsay Lohan's house arrest & Justin Bieber's new shoes), they also have a conveniently placed list of "trending topics".  Usually, the trending topics are whatever is a hot news event at the moment.  The rapture thing was a big one, the AI finale, Oprah's last show, etc.

One of today's trending topics is #lessinterestingbooks.  This is right up my alley.  Here are some of the better ones...

     - The Old Man & the Pond
     - A Tale of One City
     - Medical Office Assistant Zhivago
     - Cat on a Room Temperature Roof
     - A Tree Grows in Staten Island
     - The Girl With the Temporary Tattoo
     - The Mediocre Gatsby
     - The Count of Monty Python
     - Reasonable Expectations
     - The Wrath of Grapes

And my favorite....
     - The Hitchhiker's Guide to Des Moines
