Unread

Shamelessly copied from Eriepressible. A shameful list for me, although I might be able to knock another one off of here soon:

These are the top 106 books most often marked as “unread” by LibraryThing’s users.

Bold what you have read, italicize books you’ve started but couldn’t/didn’t finish, and strike through books you hated. Add an asterisk* to those you’ve read more than once. Underline those on your To-Be-Read list.

"Reading Lolita in Tehran"

I literally picked up this book two days ago, and just started reading it. I am on pg.10. I'll give you a full impression of it when I am finished with it.

Oh, and btw, I just finished "A Confederacy Of Dunces" for the fifth time......it gets better with each read. If you need to start somewhere to whittle down that list, I would suggest there........
