Another meme

May 1, 2008

This is the list of the top 106 unread books on LibraryThing… it’s the same idea as the book meme that I posted a while ago, but the titles are different, so…

The rules:
Bold what you have read, italicize books you’ve started but couldn’t finish, and strike through books you hated. Add an asterisk* to those you’ve read more than once. Underline those on your to-be-read list.
