Read Any Good Books?  
I saw that coquillagement did this and since that's a rarity, I felt I had to as well.

Gacked from ashavah

These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicize what you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. The numbers after each one are the number of LT users who used the tag of that book.

I will admit that some of these I've never heard of while others are just titles.

Yes, but as these are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread", that's a good thing. You and your Pimpernel. I can never get over that title. But I did enjoy Ivanhoe.

My cut somehow isn't show the full list or even the explanation. I need to fiddle with it a bit. Oh, and I just stuck those on to prove that yes, I do read some classic novels. :)
