I've been home for about 2 weeks now, but I've been crazily busy with holiday stuff! Things have finally settled down, but now I have only 5 days before I head back to school. I have so much to do before then! I still plan on posting summaries of my trip to Spain (not sure anyone cares, but they're mostly for myself and maybe my parents anyway), but those'll have to wait until after the next semester starts and I have more time (hah!).[Poll #1323651][Poll #1323651] ETA: Shoot! I meant to add a "None of the Above" option, but since I forgot, please comment if you haven't ever read any of the books on my list!

So, since the first two days of classes are over, I decided it was time for a summer roundup. Over the summer, I kept a list on the "Extended Info" box on Facebook of books I've read, movies I saw in theaters, and places I'd been. I may have missed a couple of items, but it's a pretty good summary of my summer. Since I'm going to remove those items from Facebook soon, I thought I'd post them here.

Quite a full summer!
