  1. i have Anonymity Jones, i bought it on sale for 5 dollars. i haven't gotten round to reading it though, this has encouraged me to though :)

  2. It's funny that Anonymity Jones won... I guess it was adults choosing the winners because, honestly, I found it a bit weird when I read it.
    It kind of creeped me a bit, so I didn't finish it.
    Although, I guess that they always pick sort of "educational" and "controversial" books.
