books required: participant chooses between 3-6 books
My goal is to take 'a tour of the British Museum' which would require me to read FIVE books. But I'm secretly hoping to go all the way to Buckingham Palace--6 books. But I don't want to jinx myself. Here is a site that gives a listing of authors.
