I found this list at The Wolf's Den and I was intrigued to see where I fall in this.
Who would not want to see where they stand when it came to the BBC and what they think?
As I went through the list and did my directions it is very clear that they should hear some of what I think.
Selections were named more then once, and why would a series count as one entry.
Vicki caught onto this as well.
(I completed my list before I seen what she had to say about all of this.)
Should I even mention the number of books that this brain has never hear of?
Or the books I have no desire to read?
Or what about the number of books I have read.
The Mad Scientist has plenty to think about this!
May as it might be, it would be improper of The Mad Scientist to really say what she thinks.
Dears, how do you fair on this list and really what do you think?
