Love the bonus rounds, Susan! I'll add them when I've a few moments later today :)

"Sybil" still scares me.

I love this meme! I will do it this weekend.

Ooh ! I'll have to give this a go too !

I just finished the meme. It was SO fun to sit and think about books. I think I will have my daughter do this meme this weekend too!

Reading everyone else's memes has been great fun.

Sybil was quite terriying to me as well. *shudder*

I can still remember some of the terrible lines. I won't repeat them, don't worry. We might all start having Sybil flashbacks.
