On Fridays, we ask a series of unrelated questions. Reading your answers helps me get through the afternoon. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. In Alex Pappademas' excellent Blockbuster obituary, he talks about the various retailers that replaced Blockbuster stores across the country. Not in terms of replacing your movie-renting experience, but physically—what store occupies that space today? My old Blockbuster is now our town's best pizzeria. I'll take it.

2. In a recent poll, Southern accents were ranked the sexiest. If you had to adopt an accent from any part of the world, which one would you choose? 

3. What's the last really, really good book you read?

4. Your turn! Got a question for the group? Ask away!

Have a great weekend, and keep coming back all day for more 15 lists!
