There I Go Not Posting Again

10:30 p.m. / 22:30

So, here's a long-ass book meme I grabbed from


Look at the list of books below.

Bold the ones you’ve read.

Italicize the ones you're planning to read.

Cross out the ones you won’t read / aren't interested in.

Star the ones on your book shelves.*

(Place parentheses around the ones you’ve never even heard of.)

Do nothing to the ones that you may or may not read.

For the record, I actually tried to use a smaller font size after I realized how long this list is, but Blogger would only shrink half the list. So, I put it all back into Large. Sorry.
okay, now i thought it odd enough that vbg hadn't read charlotte's web or to kill a mockingbird, but you've specifically crossed out 3 books that i know for a fact you were required to read for classes we had together in high school. i'm not saying i read all of any of them, but...tell me you at least read part of them and didn't want to fudge and say you read them if you didn't finish. not reading a tale of two cities was my downfall freshman year.
Of course I read part of them... more than half, even, just not all, and I probably never will.
LMAO!! I just opened the comment window to say, "OMG IT'S THE GIGANTOR FONT THAT ATE NEW YORK CITY!!" but I see you beat me to it ;)
