Friday, July 11, 2008

I snagged this from Vina's blog. Thanks girl! I found this list as highly intellectual.

The directions are simple:
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 blog so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;)
