That read/unread book meme thing...

mini-me
This keeps popping up 'round my flist, and I couldn't resist. I'm kind of surprised by how many of these I have read. Here's the drill:

These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicize those you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. Add an asterisk to those you've read more than once. Underline those on your to-read list.

Many of these books are ones I have vague intentions of reading someday. For simplicity's sake, I've only marked a book as being on my "to-read" list if my intentions have actually gotten to the stage of purchasing a copy.

Edited because I bolloxed up the bold tags - I haven't read quite as many as it initially seemed.

d*#@ girl! You rock!

Did you like _Love in the Time of Cholera_? I loved the movie _Horseman on the Roof_, but never got around to picking up the book...

Well, I screwed up a close tag early on in the list, which made it look much more impressive...fixed it now.

I liked _Love in the Time of Cholera_, but not nearly as much as my favorite Marquez novel, which is _100 Years of Solitude_.
