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.

Why is your frog dancing behind a toilet?

That's le Frog's icon for being sick. Not so much a cold as a horrible coughing spell. Haven't stopped coughing since Friday nor have I slept the last two nights. Going to the doctor today.
