book meme

So this is one of those fun (to me) things that I find on the interwebs that I then feel compelled to put in a blog post, especially because I missed Music Tuesday again and I have been so busy with the last couple weeks of school that I don’t really have anything else to write about, anyway (how’s that for a sentence?).  It’s that BBC book list that’s been floating around for a couple of years that I’m not sure is even really from the BBC.  But apparently they think that most people have only read 6 out of these 100 books.  I think I will have read more than that, but probably only because I took AP English classes.  Let’s see, shall we?

Instructions:

1) Bold those you have read.
