About Me

This page has been visited times since the invention of tupperware.

As you can probably tell from this list, I like to read. I realize that nobody is interested in this information besides me, but I still look over this list with a sense of pride and accomplishment. I mean, if you think about it, anyone could get this same feeling of pride and accomplishment from this list. Theoretically, the Pope could log on and find out what I've been reading! And, since I've never been Catholic, he can't even excommunicate me for it! Neener neener neener!!!

Without further interruption, I give you: every book I can remember reading!
