Unread Book Neme

I borrowed this from Only Books All The Time.

These are the top 106 books most often marked as “unread” by LibraryThing’s users (as of today). Bold what you have read, italicise that 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.

Don't distract me with the book thing!!! I had to do Pilates by myself(we'll with 3 others)but no Jen or Ketty and then to make it worse it was torture I came home not knowing if I'd make it up the stairs and then if i did if i'd make it back down the next day!!!! Ahhh but don't worry Sis said it will be harder next week.........

Can I say how much I LOVE that you've re-read War and Peace? It's been 15 years since I read it, it must be time again.
(Just spent the evening watching the Gilmore Girls and the Country Music channel on Foxtel, dreaming of those turquoise and brown cowboy boots you posted about a while back...)

Wow, that's quite a list. I've read most of them, or at least have seen the movie (does that count?)
