    I'm usually two steps back...or three four. I only read 40. Could say they list Hamlet twice...Complete Works and then stand alone. We're probably on a watch list now...if we weren't already, being here. :)

    27 of them for me. A couple more I've read bits and pieces of, like Les Mis, read some of that in a French class, we had to translate to English. And several of them I have in my library but just haven't read yet. I only counted ones I did completely read though.

    I read 32 - I'm surprised at all the classics and widely read books that I've missed out on.

    I noticed that, too, Walter. And they have both The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, which is part of the Chronicles. Not the most well-thought out list.

    I should probably be at 73, then. I read only half of The DaVinci Code and just couldn't make myself read any more. I think I counted that one, but in my defense, it felt like I read for ages to get that far (lol).

    I agree. But I counted both of those. :grin: ( We should have a book reading smiley! )

    Heck I did, too! And I counted both The Complete Works of William Shakespeare and Hamlet. They gave me the inch, so I took it :)

    Hey now! I'll have you know I've begun my 3-hours of continuing education...and! I watched the first 1/2-hour video...had to do mostly with spray-foam insulation, code requirements so on so forth...and! I had to take a short 5-question quiz at the end of it...and! :) I got all the answers right. Struggled with one, had to look at my notes. Too, had to wait to take this education until I had some free time. I'm goofing off now. :p

    Only 33--feeling inadequate. :( I used to be such a voracious reader but lost it somewhere along the way. By the time I get home most nights, I no longer have much desire to read because that's what I've been doing all day long.

    I got 42. So not so bad considering there was no SK on the list.
