27% Reading Completion

This is another meme from Facebook, and I'm boycotting all further Facebook-notes-as-updated-chain-emails. However, I figure this blog is enough about solipsism that I can get away with posting it here (and it's easier to avoid, too).

I replaced numbers 36 and 98 because The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a part of Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia and Hamlet is obviously a part of Shakespeare's complete works.

Apparently the BBC reckons most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here. I've also changed the instructions.
  • All books I have read are in bold
  • All books in red font I love.
  • All books with an asterisk I plan on reading.
  • Tally of read/loved books are at the bottom.
