A popular meme floating about Facebook right now invites you to share 10-12 Favorite Books. For bibliophiles like myself the only hesitation in participating in the contagion is how to choose only 10. Sean loves books, but he’s less giddy with this kind of listing; music, however…
So how to make a list-request as revealing and amusing, yet more inclusive to people I like to learn more about?
