On 255 "No comment.. . . .

I guess the numbering can have changed by the time we cite it. He did say 256, which now ends in -Y.

I donʻt know how this got back on the screen as it now stands (ending in ". . .Boners"); I remember revising it to appear WITHOUT the subtitle (BonerS. . . is part, but not the end, of the subtitle.) I explained that the subtitle
ended in the same letter (t) ( as the main title, so it was irrelevant for the game purposes.

I sometimes check a book title, and find the poster does not even have the book he or she listed in the posted library. Most of the titles I use, if read after about 1965, have in my 'library' a comment about what I thought of the book

756 Schmerguls: I do not list all of the books I own or that I've read on LT. I can't afford a paid account, and am therefore limited to 200 books. I want to leave lots of room on my bookshelf for the future. Anyway, there is NO rule that one has to have read a book before using the title in the game.
