red panda eating bamboo

book meme!!!

Lately seen in rivka's journal:

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.

firecat adds: There's a difference between "books I liked" and "books I would recommend." I mostly only "recommend" books to people "who like that sort of book." There are very few I recommend across the board; I'm not big on canons. I'll use * for "liked" and # for "recommend"
