Raincoaster was tagged for this meme (gads, I abhor how that word has been co-opted by the blogosphere!) by caveblogem, and she’s passed on the tag…sort of a tag-by-proxy.

Maybe she doesn’t read…?

So as caveblogem describes the rules:

It’s another book meme which lists books tagged as unread in Librarything. Bold what you have read, italicize your DNFs, strikethrough the ones you hated, and put *asterisks next to those you read more than once.

I want add a dimension — underline the books on your bookshelf (in your TBR pile).
