Do try the books, I really enjoyed them.

Impressive. I draw a blank everytime I even think of trying this one myself. However, I do have the ultimate cheater Q book and since no one so far (that I've seen) has come up with one, I'm letting myself feel smugly superior. Oh, it's Q is for Quarry by Sue Grafton.

I don't know if it's impressive, but at least it's not embarrasing. Q is for Quarry is a great one. I now wish I read Graham Greene if only for The Quiet American. (My friend cheated on X with Quark (Xpress)

You'll have to divulge your list, if only to me.
