I kid! I kid!
But, speaking of good books, I'd like to suggest you check out Scott Westerfeld's "Leviathan" series, which is a lot of fun. I liked the series a lot more than "Uglies" which was a good book, nonetheless. Still, this series had all these amazing historical tie-ins, detailed steampunk and bio-machines, adventure, suspense, and a character story that kept me engaged through all three books.
