Wheee! My First POLL ... and it's a meme!

OK, so I'm reading this message board over on LibraryThing, and somebody has posted a link back to a poll they'd made over here in L.J. of all the books they'd read in 2006, with the intent of seeing who might have read what. Slowly, others have added their own polls.

Since I've been flogging my reading so much over the past year, I figured "Hey, I can my a poll too!" but then realized that I'd never attempted to do a poll before. Fortunately it was relatively painless (except, of course, that it only lets you do 15 options at a go, so there are five sections to cover all 73 books).

Anyhoo ... how painful could it be for those folks reading my blitherings to work their way down a list of books to see if they recognized any, huh? C'mon ... humor me ... click the link ...

I'm so glad that I have some OCD to fall back on when I need to do that much cut-and-paste, let me tell you!
