Now this really makes me look bad, uneducated, and unread. And all of those are untrue. At least I got 16 out of 100. A girl who read about 5000 pages a year, fiction. Plus lately 100 publication papers. Grr. And I don’t understand why Terry Goodkind is there, and Robert Jordan isn’t. I’ve read both to an extend I cannot justify (but at leats liked the writing and rtelling style of Jordan in all books, contrary to Goodkind’s), and I read a lot of other horror & fantasy novels – none but Harry Potter show up here, and I don’t count them as literature of any kind. I really don’t want to mess with any hardcore HP fans,I read all the books, I liked the story, buther writing style is not very soffisticated. It’s great for children, but for adult#s books it would have been too simple. But I like the books.

And there’s also no Jules Verne there. Bad miss. So well .. I don’t read all junk. Just a lot 😉
