Anyways not a very bad idea to introspect our reading habits.
I would Like to Humbly request the members who have a personal blog to do this tag in their personal domain...THis way they can enjoy this tag more,by sharing it with their good friends too.However don't forget to comment here,and inform us all, so that we can create links.
For the rest, you can do this on this blog itself.
* Bold the ones you’ve read, or are reading ... [Ted at bookeywookey had colored them yellow,we going to use this one.
* Blue means I particularly enjoyed it,
* Red means I did not enjoy it)
* Italicize the ones you want to read
* Leave blank the ones that you neither want to read nor don’t want to read
* Strike the ones you have no desire to read

Members,readers, now your turn.Let us see how much well read you are.I am particularly interested in answers of The Hobbit,Alexis and Roxy and Wild Iris. I have a hunch that they may have read about 50 out of these 100 books. Lets see, anyways rest of you reading this also have to do this.
Its a bit tiring in the start,but it gets cool soon.
