Yup, time for a meme. It was book-related, so how can I resist?

Swiped intro text and all from rimrunner.



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.

Some of these I may have read more than once, but either I'm not sure, or it's been frankly so long and I remember so little that I feel guilty claiming them as once, much less twice. ;) And a couple I'm not sure about - I know I read The Bluest Eye for example, but am not sure about Beloved. And I'm pretty sure we had to read some of the stories from The Dubliners for a class, but can't remember for sure, and don't think we read the whole thing.

There are also some of these that I intend to read, and keep meaning to, but I don't really have a "to read" list per se. Except for perhaps books that I've already bought that are piled up and waiting their turn.
