Right when I was starting to wonder what I could post on this week, I managed to pick up on another book survey... the list seemed somehow familiar and yet not, so I started filling it out.

The BBC believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up?

Instructions: Look at the list and put an X after those you have read. Tag other book nerds.
