    Is that Claire Danes on the cover of The Princess Bride?

    21. Read parts of a few others. Only made it through the first Terry Goodkind book since the dialogue is among the worst I've seen put to paper.

    Goodkind gets a bit repetitive after the first couple of books, anyway. It's a logical place for you to go with no more Feist to read, but I don't think you'll find a suitable replacement with Goodkind. Try Tad Williams. I know you'll prefer the Dragonbone Chair trilogy to Goodkind, and you may even like his other stuff.

    31, but there was a lot of crap on that list - Goodkind, really?

    36. I'm counting the series that I've read at least part of. I don't really have to have read all of the Xanth series, right?
    Dick Allen was a true professional singer. He sang in a high, delicate tenor that belied his powerful body.

    I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous President who did not understand that but I understand that and we have spoken about this before.

    Please note this post was made by the 2012 NFL Losers Pool Champion.

    8, maybe 9.

    LotR, Hitchhiker's, Enders, 451, Foundation, Animal Farm, Slaughterhouse Five, I Am Legend, Flowers for Algernon (I think)

    That's a good list of things to read next year.
