If that is what you want to do, than by all means.

Hence why I tend to update when I've finished more than one book that I've listed as currently reading in the previous post.

I also picked up a library book of Scandinavian folkore and legends. My background is Norwegian so its been interesting in that regard, even if the stories do depend on characters being incredibly stupid.
it wasn't utterly terrible. some parts i actually quite enjoyed. some parts i thought were completely ridiculous, but i guess that goes with the territory. if you're looking for a quality book with merit, its not for you. if you're looking to see the Bennett sisters slashing up zombies at parties, then it may be right up your alley

I'm leaning toward that. I'll just edit my post. It may get passed over but oh well, the thread is still a good way to track what everyone is reading.

i totally get what you're saying, but some people are just too lazy to keep editing their sticky post with what they're reading, so it's easier to just keep posting their list (and it ups your post count yay?)

for some maybe it motivates them or seems like an accomplishment to be able to add to the list, i dunno. whatever floats your boat i guess
