Library Thing

in: General

Since both Liza and Phyllis did this meme, I decided to do it, too.

These are the top 106 books most often marked as “unread” by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded.
Bold the ones you’ve read,
underline the ones you read for school,
italicize the ones you started but didn’t finish.
add a * beside the ones you liked and would (or did) read again or recommend. Even if you read them for school in the first place.

(My own addition to it — put a % next to the ones for which you saw the movie, tv movie, radio series, or cartoon!)

    There are three books by Neil Gaiman, which I find odd. They are pretty much light and entertaining scifi. I most recommend Anansi Boys.
