Many of the 'performed' ticks are from movies for me. Hope that is acceptable.

I'm badly read, but at least my badly-readliness is evenly spread.

I haven't read Les Misérables but it's on my e-reader to be read! :)

It's brilliant, though there are a couple of chapters which are very skippable. If you know the musical, there are some excellent bits in the novel not covered in the stage version (eg the Battle of Waterloo).
