Meme time- Top 106 “Unread” Books on LibraryThing

The rules:
Bold what you have read, italicize books you’ve started but couldn’t finish, and strike through books you hated. Add an asterisk* to those you’ve read more than once. Underline those you own but have not read.

I enjoyed Brideshead Revisited, of Waugh. I like to see catholics blogs in America.

Probably you know the Youtube video “May feelings”. Young students of Universities of Madrid say reasons pray the holy rosary. (in Spanish, with english subtitles)
See it: http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=YxjjyXhO9EA
It is one of the most watched videos on Youtube in May.

Loved this list! I always enjoy seeing what others have read, and figuring out how many I have (and haven't) read myself. I keep a long list going, and keep delving into it at the library to keep me reading "real" books (I spend a lot of time with picture books and escapist fiction these days). Most recent was North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell (which I enjoyed) and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (which I somehow never read in high school but was fascinated by).
cheers!
