More Booky-ness

In case the universe hasn't had enough of my faux-literary opinions, I got tagged by JuneBugg.

Per the instructions I'm to look at the list of books below, bold the ones I've read, italicize the ones I might read, cross out the ones I won't read, underline the ones on my book shelf, and place parentheses around the ones I've never even heard of.

(I don't like using Underlines in html, so I'm substituting asterix* to indicate books I own.)

I haven't heard of most of the last half of the list. I don't own many on the list, although I should add To Kill a Mockingbird to my bookshelf. I actually liked it when forced to read it in high school.

Monday, yuck. (Technically Sunday, but my weekend is about over.)
