On the road again

My travel plans are slowly taking shape. I'm booked into hotels in London and Glasgow, have arranged for my flight back from Glasgow to Amsterdam (which ridiculously takes 4 hours as there's no direct flights available and I have a 1 1/2 hour stopover at Heathrow), and I've found a coach to take me from London to Coventry for the bargain basement price of £2 (it will mean getting up early, though). All I need do now is decide whether to take a coach to Paris and thence to London (= cheap, but long hours on the road), or go to France by train and fly to the UK the following morning (= expensive, but luxurious and quick). Also, I've got tickets to the London, Leamington Spa (I hope) and Glasgow shows, and Paris is free admittance, apparently.

All in all, a good morning's work, even if I say so myself.

Books and answers

Because we're all doing this:

These are the top 100 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicize what you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand.

And before I forget, here are the song titles and band names to go with the lyrics posted in last week's Playlist Meme:

01) Everything's Perfect, Magnet
04) Stay, David Bowie
08) Little Wing, Jimi Hendrix
11) Transatlanticism, Death Cab for Cutie
12) So Lonely, The Police
13) Ride, David Sylvian
14) Secret, Maroon 5
15) 'Til Kingdom Come, Coldplay
16) Anywhere, Beth Orton
17) Sexcrime (nineteen-eighty-four), Eurythmics
19) You Sexy Thing, Hot Chocolate
20) I Don't Mind If You Forget Me, Morrissey
22) Gleaming Auction, Snow Patrol
24) To Be Alone With Me, Sufjan Stevens
26) Summer's Gone, Placebo
27) (Nothing But) Flowers, Talking Heads
30) Promised You A Miracle, Simple Minds
32) Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel, Tavares
34) Macro, Depeche Mode
35) They Dance Alone (Gueca Solo), Sting

Which reminds me, I read in the paper the other day that The Verve have reformed. I quite liked them before, maybe I shall again? Also, I read that Placebo have lost their drummer, but aren't looking to replace him just yet. I don't understand: how can you be a rockband without a drummer?
