I found this list on some funny guy I don’t know’s blog, and thought I wonder how many of these I have read? Instead of just counting, I decided to copy and past and share it with all of you. (After all, it has been a few days since I’ve posted anything.) As I a sure you are biting your fingernails to know, I will just get on with it.

If you’d like to play along, here’s what you do:

1) Look at the list and put an ‘X’ (and bold) after those you have read.
2) Add a ‘+’ to the ones you LOVE.
3) Star/asterisk/Bonds (*) those you plan on reading.
4) Tally your total at the bottom.
5) Put a # (and italics) by those you’ve started but not finished.
