Reading

Mary tagged me for this reading thing on LibraryThing.

The Rules:

Bold what you have read, italicize books you’ve started but couldn’t finish, and strike through books you hated. Add an asterisk* to those you’ve read more than once. Underline those on your "To Be Read" list.

(I can't underline, but there's only a couple I want to read, and I hope there's not a test.--AS)

Wow, Amy! You are quite well read. I wish there were a bunch of poetry books on that list...

Sara said...

I think Mary should make that poetry list and start her own meme, don't you, Amy?

Amy said...

Most of it was in school a long time ago and retention is very cloudy...I've read less poetry I think, but would love to see a list--can you do that in your vast spare time Miss Mary?
