February 7 - BOOKS
This is how it works: I don't remember what I read. NOTHING!
I was listing the books for you, while I was thinking... "What the hell is this?". Not even the plot suggested me anything. Zero.
I have a Goodreads account telling me if I've already read a book or not.
I'm a visual thinker, this means I memorize images. A book has none.
So, if you want me to do something, leave a post-it, but add a smiley, a draw, something resembling a figure on it... (Otherwise do the chores by yourself!)
This is a random short list of books I liked. They are all linked, so you can read the plot.

CURRENTLY READING: John Dies at the End by David Wong.

BEST BOOK EVER: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

A great story, great characters with complicated minds, perfectly written by a genius! Everything in only 140 pages. (If you don't like Gatsby, I don't like you!)
WORST BOOK EVER: (I really hate it) One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez...
