1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicise 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
5) Put a star next to those you've only partially read.


Apparently the people who publish the list say the average person has only read six... I"ve read 39, and i am not the most prolific reader of my social group...  [livejournal.com profile] 17catherines, I dare you ..... *grins*
