Tag trivia answers:

1. funny: Me Talk Pretty One Day, David Sedaris.

2. stupid: He's Just Not That Into You, Greg Behrendt. Also tagged "stupid": Moby-Dick and Kung Fu High School.

3. chick lit: Bridget Jones's Diary
by Helen Fielding.

4. crap: The Da Vinci Code. Also used to tag The Mary Kay Guide to Beauty, The Biblical Approach to Alcohol, and Jane Eyre.

5. trash: The Da Vinci Code. Runner-up: Valley of the Dolls.

6. rubbish : The Da Vinci Code. I sense a pattern here.

7. overrated: The Da Vinci Code. Incredibly (to me!), also used more than once to tag Girl with a Pearl Earring and The Professor and the Madman.

8. love: Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife has a wide lead, which surprised me.

9. marriage (fiction): Pride and Prejudice
by Jane Austen.

10: sex (fiction): Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. Top book overall is the subtly titled The Guide to Getting It On! by Paul Joannides.

11. loneliness: a tie: Carson McCullers' The Heart is Lonely Hunter (the only one I got without looking!) and Jimmy Corrigan : The Smartest Kid on Earth
by Chris Ware (which I'd never heard of).

12. weird: Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk. I also see The Men who Stare at Goats and The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy on the list.

Your score!
10-12 right: Thingamabraian Extraordinaire

But I don't WANT to go back to MySpace!

(I got three: Bridget Jones's Diary and The Da Vinci Code for "crap" and "overrated.")

No, I'd do much worse if this were about movies!

I got five: #1, #8, and the Da Vinci Code for crap, trash, and rubbish.
