I note with interest the placement of certain titles above others - 
for example, Dante is higher than any Shakespeare title, and that 
Mother Goose trumps 'em all (with the exception of the the census 
report and the bible).

I also not that Shakespeare's works are listed separately as opposed 
to as collections.

Finally, I note that none of the books that I penned are listed at 
all! (Fools - obviously using faulty analysis methods. Calls the 
whole system into question.)
