Book List!

Have you read more than 6 of these books? The BBC believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books listed here.

For fun, I looked through the list and bolded the books I've read in their entirety, and italicized the ones I've started but didn't finish. {Some of these, I've never even heard of~ And others that I have read, are not even on the list!} One of these days, I'm going to make my own book list.
