Day 239: Top 106 Unread Books Meme

I saw this on caveblogem‘s site and figured, since I do not have lots of time to write today, spreading memes are good quasi-blog entries.

It’s another book meme which lists books tagged as unread in Librarything.  Bold what you have read, italicize your DNFs, strikethrough the ones you hated, and put asterisks next to those you read more than once.

I hereby tag lenina, anaj, cabbage and joanna.


  1. This is cool! I’ll try to write a response, but might take me some time.

  2. Can I put an M for ‘watched the movie’?

  3. Hey hey~

    Thanks for the tag! Funny ’cause I was just online last night looking up “100 Best Books Ever Written” after coming to the conclusion that I don’t read enough fiction (as this list will certainly demonstrate once I post it).

    What does DNF mean, by the way?

    Can you believe we’re almost halfway through the semester? Guess time flies when you’re having fun, huh?


  4. anaj: yeah, sure–I guess an M would count. 🙂

    Joanna: sorry, DNF stands for “did not finish.” Halfway through the semester–I know. Scary thought. There is a LOT that needs to get done before then end of this semester, I wish this was only week two. How are you doing, by the way? How are your applications going? Crazy yet? 🙂

  5. […] October 9, 2007 at 8:49 am | In Literature | Tags: Books, movie, Novel, Unread books Jetsam tagged me, and now I have to go through this list of seemingly 106 books and reveal whether I have read them […]

  6. Haha, yeah, you’d think time flying during the school year would be a GOOD thing, but I think in our case its all the more reason to freak out.

    Applications are a slow process, but they’re coming along. I’ve got 16 schools and sooooo much left to do, so I’m keeping sane by reading dystopian novels and telling myself that things could be a LOT worse than they are now.

    When all this is over I think we should get digitally drunk and laugh a lot.

    Speaking of laughing, check this out. I know, I know, I’m a total nerd…
