Friday Fun: Lists & More Lists!

As I mentioned previously, I kinda like lists.  I'm not sure why - I guess they just seem orderly and I like orderly.  Over on another online community I belong to, Sploofus, we've had some recent conversations about favorite movies, books, and songs.  It's very difficult for me to pick only one favorite, so how about a list?  How about 3 lists?!!

Favorite Movies
  1. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
  2. Dead Poet's Society
  3. Manchurian Candidate (The original, not that horrible re-make)
  4. Johnny English
  5. The Princess Bride
  6. Clue
  7. Rear Window
  8. Dial M for Murder
  9. Witness for the Prosecution
  10. Star Trek (the new one)
Favorite Books 
  1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (there aren't a lot of books I re-read, but this one I periodically read again - it's just so good!)
  2. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  3. The Life of Pi by Yann Martel
  4. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  5. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
  6. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
  7. The Passage by Justin Cronin
  8. The Demon in the Freezer by Richard Preston
  9. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
  10. Everything Lee Child has written
Favorite Songs
  1. Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin
  2. Eyes of a Stranger by Queensryche
