Okay I saw this meme over at Starrlight's blog and thought it would be cool to at least attempt it. Afterwards I felt so unread I am a little embarrassed.
The meme rules are:
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.
Since my style sheet and various formatting don't go well together I thought I would just color code everything.
Anyway here is the legend
Blue Titles are books I have read.
Cyan Titles are books that I started but never finished.
Green Titles are those I plan to read someday maybe when I retire and have extra time or not.
White Titles are those I have heard about or know so much about I don't plan to read the book.
