Of special note:
6. Which set of books have you read ALL of?
Bridges of Madison Country, The Da Vinci Code, The Name of the Rose, and at least two Harry Potter books
Moby Dick, Huckleberry Finn, Wuthering Heights, Great Expectations, The Great Gatsby
War and Peace, Silas Marner, Madame Bovary, The Age of Innocence, To the Lighthouse
Carrie, The Stand, and a couple other books in high school that I don’t remember.


Well, I didn’t read The Da Vinci Code and I’ve only skimmed a couple of Harry Potters. I prefer Eco’s nonfiction and essays, and WHERE are my 19th century Russian novels?
