So, I hadn't caught on till last night about these great Top Ten Tuesdays from The Broke and the Bookish Blog. Over at "There's A Book" I saw Danielle's post on the Top Ten Characters I'd Like to Switch Places with for 24 Hours and thought it was an AWESOME idea, so although I'm about 5 days to late, here's my top 10 for this week (and here's the rest of my list Danielle )

"When King Lear dies in Act V, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He's written "He dies." That's all, nothing more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of the most influential work of dramatic literature is "He dies." It takes Shakespeare, a genius, to come up with "He dies." And yet every time I read those two words, I find myself overwhelmed with dysphoria. And I know it's only natural to be sad, but not because of the words "He dies." but because of the life we saw prior to the words."
