Me? I love books, yes.

These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicise that you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. Add an asterisk* to those you've read more than once. Underline those on your to-read list.

So, does this make me well read, or just a HUGE DORK? Perhaps someone with an English degree? All of the above, I'm sure. Also, I ALWAYS finish a book, even if I don't care for it (to explain the lack of italics).


I've been to a few concerts recently, and I plan to tell you all about them. AMAZING, in a word. Sleeping with Giants tour and then Young Wild Things twice (possibly three times if I manage Vegas tickets). Speaking of, if anyone at all has a spare GA/Pit ticket for Vegas I would love you for my entire life if I could buy it from you!

But yes, I'm hoping little Spencerface will cooperate tonight and let me make a few long, picture-laden concert posts. Let's hope for the best.
