29. Ernest Cline Ready Player One Not very well written, but will fill any 80's nostalgia deficiency you're feeling. Billed as a dystopian novel, too many people live happily ever after. Some major plot holes.

The other day I looked out the kitchen window and saw a bird which, to me, resembled George C. Scott playing Scrooge. It was the mutton chops and the large down pointing beak. Face on this bird

really does look like Scott. I couldn't find a good shot head on, but you might be able to picture the white swath running down from the beak as mutton chops.

My brain is strange.

The bird is a juvenile Rose Breasted Grossbeak.

23. P.G. Wodehouse The Girl On The Boat
