I would like to make a toast to lying, stealing, cheating and drinking.

I stole this idea from Krishna over atS. Krishna’s Books. I think it’s okay as she admits to stealing it from someone else. Good times.

Anyway, I considered not posting it after I filled out the list as I found my record to be less than impressive. Nonetheless, for your enjoyment, here you go:

These are the top 106 books most often marked “unread” by LibraryThing’s users. Here are the rules: BOLD the books you have read, italicize the books you started but did not finish (DNF), *STAR* the books you’ve read more than once, underline books that are on your TBR pile, and cross out books that you hated. [If listed in plain text, I just don’t care about the book at all – (DJ’s note)]
