If you like reading Young Adult books, I highly recommend checking out the list NPR has just compiled. I've checked off 32 and have one ebook on hold from the list. Also, this was a great one that Not Martha shared awhile back, if you liked the Hunger Games, here's a cool little flowchart for your enjoyment:

Although a glaring omission from both lists, and a MUST read in my opinion, are the City of Ember books by Jeanne DuPrau. At nearly ten years old, I think this series set the stage for many books to follow. Not in the same way as Ray Bradbury or Lois Lowry, per se, but still worth recognition.
Moving on, I have to share the latest funny or die because it stars one of my favorite entertainers of all time: Simon Pegg. And you've probably already seen the other Olympic funny goin' round: McKayla's not impressed. (Just in case you haven't, check out the fun the Oiselle HQ ladies had with it here.)
My Friday song really helped light a fire under me on my long run. The Rockstarr album by Taio Cruz is really fun, but this remix of Dynamite is one of my favorite tunes.
