I'm currently re-reading High fidelity for the third time. For anyone who isn't familiar with the book or film adaptation the fundamental story is based on a list of worst breakups by a music obsessed record shop owner. This book makes me want to categorize every aspect of my life into lists of top 5s. everone needs this in their life. beaut.
also John Cusack is seriously hot in the film. ♥
