Books meme

I think I may be addicted to "memes". These little mind viruses are such a fascinating way to learn more about one another. As a library nerd, this one that I swiped from Grammar Snob appeals to me even more than most.

Anyway, on with the list. Copy it and . . .

  • Bold those you’ve read.
  • Italicize books you have started but couldn’t finish.
  • Add an asterisk* to those you have read more than once.
  • Underline those on your To Be Read list.

You simply must read Angels and Demons. Go, now.....run to the library and get it. Or I'll loan you my copy.

I feel like a real idiot! I haven't read very many of these.

I hadn't read very many of them either. It sure makes an interesting "To read someday" list, though!

Most of the ones I have read are sci-fi/fantasy. heh. Or were required reading in school.
