That was sadder than I thought! You can tell a few things, like I LOVE STEINBECK!!! But I live in Steinbeck Country, so what can I say? Also, I changed the Guy Gavriel Kay from The Summer Tree, the beginning of a mediocre trilogy, to Tigana, one of his best, beautifully conceived works. Summer Tree... Indeed!

I felt bad about how many classics (all of which I own) were on the Want To list. Oh well, too busy with movies :-)


It's about me, dummy!!!
