I found this little meme at Diane's site and thought I'd give it a try. It's a list of books; you get to see what you've read, what you haven't, what you hated and so on. After doing it, I am left wondering who came up with this list. Is it best-sellers, quote-important-unquote books, what? There's a whole lotta Harry Potter on that list, and a shocking lack of Chuck Palahniuk. I also noticed that I have a disgraceful amount of books to finish. Here goes.....
Directions:
  • Use blue font for everything you’ve read
  • Use red font for everything you’ve started but never finished
  • Use purple font for everything you’ve read but wish you hadn’t
  • Use yellow font for everything you would never read, even if you and that book were the only things to survive the apocalypse
  • Use black font for things you’ve never read
  • Use green front for things you want to read
  • Use orange font if you’ve read the author but not that particular work
