A bit ago I saw the Goodreads 100 Book Challenge on the Darwin’s blog.  I was looking over the list of books, and I started to think that I’ve read quite a few.  So I thought I’d post my own version.  According to the Goodreads site, most of their users have read 27 of the 100 books.  I’ve read 68, which I think is fairly respectable.  Of course, just because I know I’ve read a particular book doesn’t mean I actually remember it.  Some of the books on the list aren’t really that memorable.  And in the interest of honesty, I didn’t bold a few books that I think I read, but I’m not sure if I actually read them, or just owned them for a while.

Here’s the key:
Books I’ve read
Books I started but didn’t find interesting enough to continue
Could be interested to read
If I were handed this, I’d look for the nearest cereal box as an alternative
