Reading Lists

Just found The Library Thing and this meme.

http://www.librarything.com/tag_allbooks.php?tag=unread 

From the current list of people’s ‘unread’ books on Library Thing, copy the first 100. Bold – the one’s you’ve read, italicize ones you started to read and couldn’t be bothered to finish, cross through ones you read and hated.
