A Final, Desperate Book Meme

This is a little appalling, but maybe it's just not the right list of books. Also, I don't have a lot of novels on my bookshelf, because I get most of them from the library.

What's appalling is that I crossed out many of the classics, because realistically, I haven't read them yet and I probably won't. And any book with "crypto" in the title is probably not the kind of light before-bed reading I tend to want.

Also, any classics I have read, I probably read in high school. And where's A Farewell to Arms? I actually remember liking that one.

Bold the ones you've read, italicise the ones you might read, cross out the ones you won't, and underline the ones on your book shelf!

Coincidentally, I just posted an entry titled Desperation Post. Good thing NaBlo-Pop-Mo ends tomorrow.
