Welcome back to Mark's boring life.
Frankly, there's not much going on here.
I'm furious with one of my roommates. The one who won't clean up after himself at all. And when he promises to, it still doesn't happen. There are now six glasses on one end table he promised to take care of, and the kitchen has been dirty for a week and a half straight. He'll only clean it up enough to get what he needs for what he wants to cook this time around and then dirty it up again.
Meanwhile, he's a nice guy, and I hate being mad at him. But I hate trying to make my lunch or watch TV around his mess.
Once again, being a follower, I'll complete the book list now. Inspite of how much I read, this list will look pretty unimpressive.

There are several authors on here that I've read one of their books, but not the one listed here. Many of them were for school assignments. I think the only reason these books are classics is because everyone was forced to read them in school. :)
