    why not?

    yeah but how come Tracy Hickman isn't? I never read a book by Weiss alone :)

    also did not read him

    BTW list is not complete, I just took a screenshot and that is as much as fit the screen, in total my read list has read ‎435 books so far (not that these are all I've read...)
