A bit more challenging than the first one. I love that you included the last book by Frank McCourt. It gave me most trouble.

I did the same. I think that's partly why the percentages are so comparatively low there.

Type of matter would be solid, liquid, or gas, and if you'd like, plasma. As well, toothpaste is a paste, not a gel. It's right there in the name.

Happy to see Angela's Ashes and Pippi Longstocking. A nice change from the usual fare. Got 'em all with 2:08 left. Lord of the Flies threw me for a moment. Kept trying to figure out how Superman could travel with rings.

Did the same thing, for more than a moment. The sad thing is that "Lord of the Rings" isn't even the title of a book.

Since when is tootpaste a gel? ok I guess there are some of those luby gelly ones out there, but generally it is just a paste, with on rare ocassion a stripe of shiny gel-y substances.

For it to be a gel it must shine, and none of my toothpastes ever did, just white mat, when it dries it gets powdery, not bouncy. So I won't consider the usual ones a gel.
