11:41 am - Bookthing meme stolen from maliyes
What we have here is the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded. Bold the ones you've read, underline the ones you read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish. Here's the twist: add (*) beside the ones you liked and would (or did) read again or recommend. Even if you read 'em for school in the first place.

I'm not even sure if my list is entirely correct. Some of the older classic books I would have read as a teenager and I can't always remember what I read then. I've definitely seen each Masterpiece Theater film that was made of any of those movies. I cut out the ones I haven't read or can't remember reading to save space and also not emphasize my shortcomings.

Atlas Shrugged
Beloved

The Catcher in the Rye
David Copperfield *
Dubliners
Emma
The Fountainhead
Gulliver’s Travels
The Hobbit
The Iliad
