Stole this meme from Jette, who stole it from someone else. These are the top 106 books marked as 'unread' on LibraryThing. There to make people appear intellectual perhaps? Some of them I would not keep for that purpose. A few I'll never even touch the cover of again. How about you?

Bold the titles you've read, underline those you read for school, italicize those started but never finished.

I'm sitting here, thinking about doing a lot (well, several anyway) things and getting none of them done. I might as well surrender and go back to LibraryThing and do some more cataloging. I have way too many books, but lo and behold, there is a brand-spanking-new public library just down the street. I may clear out and have a mass donation... Goodness knows I bring enough of the damned things home...mmmm luuuuvvvvv books.....
