Adapted (and blatantly nicked) from [livejournal.com profile] daibhid_c's journal.

What we have here is the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded. Bold the ones you've read, underline the ones you read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish. Mark with an asterix those you own but have never read.
