The BBC booklist tag thingy

Hey people,i trust you've been great.I've been simply awesome as always and i've been away because i've been quite busy.Anyway,@atilola tagged me on this BBC booklist thingy and when i saw the list,the first thing that crossed my mind was "my enemies are at work",don't laugh o because this is a serious matter.I mean,i have read lots of books.From Dan Brown to Mario Puzo to John Grisham to James Patterson to Sydney Sheldon to John Sanford to James Hardley Chase and a host of others.Now the question is,why would BBC skip the books from these great authors? Now you see where my enemies came in abi? Anyway,lemme just get right into it and please,if you're laughing at me,don't it discretely,don't let me catch you cos i'm ashamed of myself for this.I read Kane and Abel just last year and Animal Farm was in secondary school (thank God for secondary school,choi!!!).And they said movies don't even count,talk about enemies plotting evil!!!

Copy and do a blog post on it. Bold those books you've read in their entirety, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish or read an excerpt. Asterisks mean I've read the book over and over again. Tag 25 (book loving) bloggers, and inform them on their blog about the tag.

[Watching the movies does not count ].

    I have been using this system for some time now; I will be showing you how to make unlimited cash with your liberty reserve account and a perfect money account. I will try to make it as short as possible. But clear, just like every other business your interest and seriousness counts.

    "The reward for hard work is success".


    1. open a liberty reserve account at ( this is free).

    2. Open a perfect money account at (this is free).

    3. Fund your liberty reserve account with a minimum of 11 USD, because of transaction charges, actually you needed a minimum of 10 USD.

    (Note: To fund or sell your liberty reserve, go to to search for an e-currency exchanger close to you.)

    4. Go to , and exchange 10 USD from your liberty reserve account to your perfect money account.

    1 LR------>1.28 PM, so 10 LR----> 12.80 PM.

    5. Go to or , exchange 12.80 Perfect money to 11.01liberty reserve.

    1 PM ----> 0.86 LR, so 12.80 PM--->11.01 LR. You have gain 1.01 USD.

    6. Repeat the exchange process from LR---->PM--->LR.

    You can always increase your capital, because the more money you exchange the faster u make your cash. I can make up to 257 USD per day. Doing up to 25 exchanges per hour. But there is also no harm in starting small.
