Books

The list is the 106 books most often noted as unread by Library Thing users. Bold is for books you’ve read. Italics for books you’ve started but haven’t finished. Strikethrough is for books you found unreadable. In addition, if a book is underlined then it’s on The List to Read (possibly even in the Stack by the Bed!)

Now I’ve read tons of books in the last 10 years but the number of books on this list is probably small. I tend to read trashy romance or ‘children’s’ books with the occasional ‘popular’ book.
