I've stolen these from Crystal because I too am bored and yet I don't have the patience to write out a full entry...so...yeah.



The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they have printed.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)
