Thumbs down: lsah, Simone2, electrice, peterdj, Edward, lilithcat, SilentInAWay, gilroy

Score: 42.33

Explanations:

electrice (0): not a single book

gilroy (0): I think one should find their flavor of Shakespeare, rather than read ALL his works. So no to the complete works.

ahef1963 (21): Have read all of them (university Shakespeare course). Loved the tragedies, disliked the histories.

sturlington (88): Just read what you like. But read a lot of them. Then go see them performed.
