(UPDATED. I had forgotten to bold Lord of the Flies. FYI, I've read 35 of these.)

Hmm. I kind of want there to be a couple more types of formatting, for indicating "yes, I read it, but I hated it," and "no, I haven't read this, and I never, ever will." Via bruhinb:

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well, let's see:

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.

I'm My Own Father!

OK, maybe a weird quiz for me to take, given my internet call-sign, but it was fun and I like the result.

See more Tolkien selector quizzes @ SelectSmart.com®
Which Son of Feanor are you?
Here's my top result for this selector quiz by Little she-bear:

UPDATE: Btw, if you're a little lost, here's the Wikipedia article on the sons of Fëanor.

Via pinkhairedcyn, who is more masculine than myself.

You Are 65% Feminine, 35% Masculine
You are in touch with your feminine side.
Sensitive, intuitive, and caring are all words that describe you.
And you're just masculine enough to relate to both men and women.

[UPDATE: I thought this sounded familiar, so I did a search and discovered I was placed in House Tully by another internet quiz. I guess there's no escaping destiny!]

Well, that's not exactly the answer I wanted. Via most of my LJ friends' list:

Your Score: Catelyn Stark

You scored 160 Adaptability, 240 Humor, 220 Integrity and 110 Activity!

Let them have their songs, if it makes them brave.

You are Catelyn Stark.

You are a quiet, family-oriented person, and a great representation of the Tully house words: family, duty, and honor. You can be brave when the situation requires it, though you are a constant worrier. You are protective (sometimes over-protective) of your loved ones and you have a strong moral compass. However, you are not particularly forgiving. You are willing to take action against anyone who betrays you, your family, or your friends. You are steadfast, loving, and dutiful.

You are also similar to Eddard Stark and Samwell Tarly. Your polar opposite is Jaime Lannister.
