I did this back in 2007, but I’ve since read more books and acquired some and changed my mind about reading some of these books, so I thought I’d do this again. =)

Bold the ones you’ve read,
Italicize the ones you want to read,
Cross out the ones you won’t touch with a 10 foot pole,
Put a cross (+) in front of the ones on your book shelf, and
Asterisk (*) the ones you’ve never heard of.
