what about the Lord of the Rings trilogy?  She always refers to hobbits ("do you guys really not know what hobbits are?" and when the audience member said LOTR she said "thank you")  I'm sure she's the type to have read the books and not just seen the movies.  I can't remember what the proceeding book is called, the one about Bilbo Baggins (I think, I've never read it), but that one should be on there too!

This is such a great idea, and also the autobiography of Allegra Kent, the dancer was mentioned.

The Larry David link doesn't seem to work for me either.

AWESOME.

Could you please correct The Year of Magical Thinking? It says WYear and I got a huge peeve with typos. Cheesy

Um there was that graphic novel... Habibi (one sec. Lemme Google it) Ok. It's by Craig Thomson.

It's technically a book.

So.

I guess we should add the Game of Thrones series by George R R Martin.

The series is called A Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones is just the first book (and if you haven't read them, they are amazing and addictive and not happy at all)
