    I'm 3 for 56!
    Potter, Dune, Liebowiz

    A Pal

  2. LOL! If you'd started reading these in elementary school like I did you'd be much further along now. But it's not too late to start. Want me to suggest a couple to start with? Huh? Huh?

  3. Wow. Very impressive. I've got 28 winners knocked off my list so far. How many of the nominees have you read? You can find the complete Hugo list on my web site.

  4. I did a quick count, and I see 53 of the other nominees I've read, so that's not so great out of, what, over 200. When I finish the award winners from all these sff and mystery awards lists (ha, ha) I'll start on the other nominees. So many great books. It's a comfort to know I'll never run out of fun books to read.
