The Ever-Expanding Book Meme

bold = read it
italicised, but not bold = a book I want to read but haven’t yet
italicised and bold = a book I’m currently reading
italicised and struck through = a book I failed to finish reading but keep meaning to get back to
bold and struck through = a book I tried to read and have formally abandoned out of disinterest
purple bold = a book I love
purple bold italics = a book I love so much that it is always current reading
red bold = a book I read but would not especially recommend

Then add 4.

I would not particularly suggest The Last Continent, but that's because I am not a big fan of the Wizards sub-series in Discworld.

I love book memes. :)

you must be a bookworm..=p i have seen and heard most of the books in ur list- thats because i hang around most of my time in the library.

i am still holding onto the book ' the da vinci code' and its pretty hard to find time to open it as its examination period.

Anyway i get my inspiration to be a writer from most fiction books.Check out my blogger 'ur asking a librarian to brush up on her english. Dont make me laugh!'

All u need to enlive a book is pure imagination and a heart that feels its way through reality.

P.S. Signs to show that i am crazy over a book --- i will read it in one shot

=p
