Their website also mentions "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," which happened to be my last read (I have a 10 year old, ok?)..... one more tear in my eye that RPattz and I are on completely different levels, cause he's reading books like the one discovered by LTR:
I saw the pictures of you holding a book recently and wondered to myself what you were reading. I figured I could blow up the picture & throw a little photoshop filter on to try and read the title myself, OR I could just tweet my question knowing someone’s probably already done the dirty work for me. (Moon & UC tip of the day, start a blog & get a lot of people to read it and then just ask THEM to do all the research for you- it’s a whole lotta fun)* Turns out I didn’t even have to tweet because the gals at Robsessed had someone figure it out for them!
Looks like you’re reading Independent People by Halldor Laxness. Like any good fan, I immediately went to Amazon to purchase the book. Ya know, just in case we end up in a bar together & need something to talk about other than what we’ll obviously be doing later that night (skyping with Kristen. duh) Although I am a good fan, I’m also frugal, and I wanted to make sure I was going to enjoy what I was spending my $10.85 on.
You might judge me now, but I thought the description of the book sounded like it sucks. Big time. I decided I wouldn’t admit that to the world or my friends, but would just pretend I never found out what book you were holding.
WestFriend: If Rob wore glasses…I might squeal. And I hate squealers.
EastFriend: DO NOT attempt to read Independent People...just because Rob was carrying it. It is long. It is confusing. It is painful. It is arduous. It is BORING. If he’s trying to appear all mysterious and educated and cultured for reading it, he failed. Cause an ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure.
