Reading progress

Beginning with my sophomore year of college, I have always used the couple of days before Independence Day to graze The Federalist Papers. This year, I've waltzed my way through Nos. 8, 9, 46 and 48. (No need for No. 10. I seem to have significantly large portions memorized thanks to a wonderful, if crazed, history teacher in high school.)

Every casual student of American History has a favorite Paper, right? Right?!

Am I the only one? *sigh*

UPDATE: No. 84 - Hamilton: We don't need no bill of rights
