Book Meme

So I don't really do memes much anymore, but this one....yeah.

"BBC book list", a meme stolen from Ted.
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. Instructions: Copy this into your NOTES. Bold those books you've read in their entirety. Italicize the ones you started but didn't finish or read only an excerpt.Tag other book nerds. Tag me as well so I can see your responses!
