106 Most Unread Books

has nothing to do with the post, except that
it's a book and it's by Jodi Thomas
and it saved me from being extremely bored while waiting
at SAMS for my tires to be installed.
Hmmm, I found this on my 'draft list'

The below listed books are the top 106 books most often tagged as being unread by LibraryThing users (as of October 3rd).

The instructions are simple: Bold what you have read, and italicize books you have started but couldn’t finish. Add an asterisk* to those you have read more than once. Underline those on your TBR list (in my case this means I own them, but have yet to read them). The ones marked in red are books I am considering reading one day but do not have on hand.


I'm not sure if I would read the other books listed here which I haven't gotten around to before now. There's just so many new books that comes up. So unless I know how 'fabulous' a book listed here is, I'd probably just keep them in my TBR pile.
