From bouncybaby (G, I reckon the apparent redundancies with Hamlet/Complete Works and Lion, Witch, Wardrobe/Narnia Chronicles might be due to the way the top 100 titles are determined?)

The challenge is:
1. Look at the list and put in bold those you have read.
2. Italicize those you intend to read. (In the main because they are sitting on my bookshelf and it seems such a shame not to.)
3. [Bracket] the books you LOVE.
4. Reprint this list on your own blog.

In the interests of full disclosure I’m adding 5. Underline the books you have started to read but haven’t read from cover to cover.
