Questions from my nominator (I'll start with the ones from Book Club Librarian):

I want to read Wuthering Heights, I’ve seen plenty of TV and movie adaptations but I’ve still not gotten around to reading it.

Oh God, I have absolutely no idea. I tend to read about 10 each month I think. So… maybe 120… that can’t be right. That’s a lot of books!
