Read and unread

Instead of doing something truly productive, I've been catching up on Spacebeer's blog as is obvious from my citing her posts below and adding her to my blogroll. Hi Spacebeer! Why did it take so long for me to read your blog? I've been remiss. Please forgive. Anyway, to placate your ferociousness, here you go:

"someone compiled a list of the top 106 books tagged "unread" on Librarything, and started a nifty little meme.

Here is the plan:
Bold = I've read it for fun [I guess this is a catch-all]
Underline = I read it for school
Italics = I started it but didn't finish
Asterisk = I own it, but haven't read it"
