Bookish matters

"Borrowed" from melanieathene

Under the cut are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicise what you started but couldn’t finish, and strike through what you couldn’t stand.

I have one small problem with this - I'm a compulsive "finisher" ie if I start it, I see it through to the bitter end. The only book I've ever not finished was Sophie's Choice which isn't on this list!
Following in melanieathene's footsteps, I've marked with an asterisk those books that are on my intended reading list.
