What's the Fastest You've Ever Finished a Book?

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Some people are fast readers. Other people are fast readers when they're really excited about a book. What books holds your personal record for the fastest book you've ever finished?

2. Tomorrow is Record Store Day. If you still have a record store near you at which you could celebrate, you're probably in the minority. Where was your favorite place to buy music growing up? A record shop? Used CD store? Columbia House?

3. Your college or high school called (your choice) and they want to name something after you. What's an appropriate way for you to be remembered at your school?

Also: if you're in New York and not busy on April 26th (Thursday), we're having a party. I look forward to asking you random questions in person.

[Have a great weekend! See all the previous Friday Happy Hour transcripts.]

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
