100 Books

| 2 Comments

There's a meme floating around here on Vox with a pretty random selection of 100 books, so I figured I'd jump in.  I added another category of highlighting - I struck out books I've either read or started to read that I wish I hadn't:-)

Look at the list of books below. Bold the ones you've read, underline
the ones you have read a bit from but never finished, italicize the
ones you might/want to read in the future, cross out the ones you
won't touch with a 10-foot pole, and do not do anything to the
ones you've never heard of.

[this is good] I'm going to do this. It looks like a fun meme. :)

Yeah, as someone else said, it's a random list of books, but a nice sprinkling of genres anyway. It did add "The Alchemist" to my "To Read" pile.
