    You succeeded, I knew 3 off the top of my head, was able to find 4 rather quickly and will need to research the remainders.

    I'm gonna say yes, but actually have no idea if they are in Brian's count or not. (If you're seeing this and you already sent in your submission please don't re-send it in)

    I put down the number of books and chapbooks just in case. one answer I can't seem to find. Although the others could be wrong. Ima send it in with the one answer missing because I can't find it.

    "No" to freebie promo chapbooks, but "yes" to any chapbook with a retail price that was actually sold through the store.

    Well I counted everything I could find and gave Dan a breakdown...Of course I did run out of toe's and fingers so I probably mis-counted anyway

    Silly, I know, but can you clarify the tie-breaking procedure? Is it:

    Most questions right out of numbers 1 - 10, then
    Bonus/tiebreaker question, then
    Whoever sent in their email first

    ?

    Thanks.

    I hadn't really thought that far ahead to be honest. I was something Brian had me throw in at the last minute.
