Are you kidding me? You must be kidding me.

Mother of Moses, there is a Ayn Rand dating site?!?! This is probably all for the good, as now they can date each other and not bother regular people. Being more open, I like the idea of a book related dating service, just not a crazy book date service.

On the site, the Objectivists proclaim their joy that Atlas Shrugged is ninth on the list of our nation's favorite books, according to Harris Interactive. Most interesting, and perhaps strange, is that our nation's favorite novel is Gone with the Wind. The Bible takes the top spot, natch.

But back to Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged is on the list of favorite novels? I can't decide if it is worse that the Da Vinci Code is on the list. I suppose Atlas Shrugged is better as it is a novel of ideas. Crazy, bad ideas, but ideas nonetheless.

The rest of the list is no surprise as it includes Catcher in the Rye and To Kill A Mockingbird, as well as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.
