A book list

As always, I’m a day late and a dollar short, but I had fun going through this list found at Life Must Be Filled Up. Basically, this is a list of the top 106 books most often marked as “unread” by LibraryThing’s users. Bold the ones you’ve read, underline the ones you read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn’t finish. I only underlined one; frankly school was a loooong time ago…. Anyhoo, here are my results.
