Books, Books, Books!

You may have gathered that I. Love. To. a fun little activity I may find on another blog (Clever Girl Goes Blog) that deals with books is definitely going to wind up here! I had fun going through this list of book titles!!!

What you do is take the following list of books (the top 106 marked most often as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users). Bold the ones you've read, italicize the ones you started but couldn't finish, strike through the ones you really sort of hated, put an *asterisk* next to the ones you've read more than once, and underline the ones on your own personal To Be Read list.

There are a few random books on this list that most people haven't made it all the way through, such as The Iliad, The Odyssey and The Aeneid--but having majored in English in college, there were many Greek Mythology classes to take and I took them! Who knew that the only benefit I would gain from it would be bolding their names on a super awesome list! Yay me!

I dare you to post a list of your own!
