    That’s a lot of people to get to know! I like your take on “the best of” thing by going with characters rather than the books themselves. Happy New Year!

    You have an excellent memory. Sadly, very few characters leave that much of an impression on me (even though their books might). I just don’t have the memory capacity or something. BUT I did see some characters on there I recognized and liked too!!
