Meme

Look at the list of books below: *Bold the ones you’ve read* Italicize the ones you want to read* Leave blank the ones that you aren’t interested in. If you are reading this (and haven't participated yet), tag, you’re it!

I reworked the rules. Bold is books I have read, Italized is books on the tbr pile, crossed out books I will never read, and left alone ones are ones that just have not made it on the pile... do I look like I need anymore?

  1. Hey, Kelly, you may want to re-do your count of books you've read from my list of 100 ... I was changing some of the titles even as you posted your comment. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Who wrote this meme? How can we go from Joyce to Hinton to Dan Brown.


    It's Dan Brown!!! He should be in another list.... Not worthy of the rest of the great books on this meme.


    In happier non-"Dan Brown is a crime against fiction"
    news,

    you have read a lot of books :) YAY !

  3. May I ask why the aversion to Harry Potter? Just curious as people seem to either love or hate those books.

    You can definitely tell when a Canadian is doing this meme - a lot more CanFic authors are checked off as being read! How did you like Not Wanted on the Voyage? That is one of my favorite books.
