  1. haha, I wish it was my idea. it was actually taken from several different people before me.

  2. Starring them is easier anyway… Travis and I should have about the same, cause the only one I have read that wasn’t for school is Pride and Prejudice. I don’t usually do “great novels” on my own, I do books like Ender’s Game and Dune. Cult classics. 🙂
