I know this is exciting to no one, but I want to do it anyway. Blah!

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.

And maisfeeka added this: [bracket] the books you own but haven’t read yet.

It all comes down to: I haven’t read far, far more books than I have read. But I did read the unabridged Les Miserables over Christmas break during my senior year of high school, just because I wanted to. So that should count for something.
