    Very good! Love “Used and Rare.” I would have gone with “Genius.” 😉 100 books! I'm guessing you don't have a TV (my downfall).

  3. AndrewL says:

    While I don't have a TV, I do watch a lot. I guess I don't have a life, which allows for lots of reading. I DO read on the bus, at lunch, and in the evening for an hour or so too :P.

    Of course, my Thought for the Day should be A Parliament OF Women, the Aristophanes play. Rather more rude than I was expecting from an ancient greek playwright. I'd read Sophocles and Euripides beforehand so this was a bit of a shock for my senstivie constitution.

  4. Sylvia says:

    Sounds like you're a very efficient reader. I have a tendency to dawdle and consider the cosmic implications of every sentence.

    Soooo you haven't read Lysistrata yet? Better save it for when you're feeling particularly secure in your manhood…

  5. AndrewL says:

    Oh, I've read Lysistrata. The book was a collection of Aristophanes' 'greats'.
    SHOCKED I tell you!

  6. Sylvia says:

    😀 And people think Sex and the City is shocking!

  7. SFP says:

    Those are cool, Sylvia. I love this meme. I think we ought to do it in December every year. 🙂

  8. Stefanie says:

    Excellent answers! I am going to have to do this one too after I finish my term paper and can think of fun things again 🙂

  9. Sylvia says:

    Good idea, Susan. I'm in!

    Thanks, Stefanie. I look forward to your answers!
