Hey I do sometimes.
Speaking of the Top 10... I was in the bookstore last week and one of them is called The Lovely Bones. I have heard so much awesome commotion on this book. About a girl who's in heaven seeing what happens after her death on earth and how it affects everyone around her. Anyone read this yet? I think this might be the next one I go check out of the library.
