pride and prejudice, reading

The Big Read

There's a book meme going around, which I stole from berseker. It goes like this: The BBC compiled a list of the best-loved novels in the UK, and apparently it's estimated that most people have only read 3 out of the 100 books listed here.

The ones in bold are the ones I've read. A grand total of 23, I'm afraid. The ones I've underlined are the ones I'm currently reading. The ones in Italics are the ones I intend to read.

I think the list is a bit old because Twilight's not in it. Not that I'm complaining.

Also, WTF is Pillars of the Earth doing way up there on #33? WTF, British people. However, you've got García Márquez twice, so I think I'll let this one slide.

P.S.: Go wish tabacoychanel a happy birthday!
