Someone just asked me about all of my intelligent, good-looking readers and I could only tell him that I was surprised there was such good internet connectivity in mental institutions and under bridges the world over. But just in case my impression is wrong, and because I'm always up for a good book chat, sound off. You have to click the vote button on each one. (There's a mirror of this poll in the message boards, where you can create your own polls as well.)
Thanks for playing. If we ever make any money around here it will go, as with all donations, to the general Ninja Prize and Mischief Fund (the NiPMiF), which is always looking for a good cause. Prizes for most pieces sacrificed during a tournament, most revealing outfit worn by male or female player, subscriptions to Playboy donated to a K-6 or the world blind championship, that sort of thing.
Of course advertisers really want to know your age, income, education level, and location, but I value my privacy and I assume you do, too. As for conversation, if this isn't enough, what's the last chess book you bought, or your last chess purchase in general? Some fine folks send me books for free, but I think I last shelled out my own hard-earned cash on Benjamin's "American Grandmaster." I'd further endorse my Chess.FM homeboy Joel but I have to admit I haven't read it yet. We're moving this week so it will be a good opportunity to count, maybe even organize and index, my chess books. I'm sure the number will be scary. Time for a sale?
