Book Thing

Pillllfured from wlach.
Top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. If you've read it, bold it. Italicise what you couldn't make it all the way through, and strike out what you loathed. Numbers represent the total LT users who used the tag of that book.

Observations:
A)I've read a few more than I was expecting. Thanks Liberal Arts!
B) I used to read significantly more than I do now...this must be remedied.
