That Book Meme

Gacked from manonlechat,nokomarie and45cats:

(This is a list of 106 books most often listed as unread by LibraryThing users. Bold the ones you've read, italicise the ones you plan to read, and strikethrough the ones you couldn't make it through. Add an asterisk to those you've read more than once. )

Plus, I have my own twist; any book I only read for school is in red.

My list seems short compared to some of you all. It's because I'm a reading wimp; I want a happy ending and a lot of those 18th and 19th century novels seem to be long, involved tales of angst and doom with no redeeming ending. Also, I won't voluntarily read a book about a protagonist I don't like. I just don't see the point in spending the time.
