I wanna be like Cam

Saw this on Cam's blog so now I'm stealing it. I haven't done one of these in ages.

Look at the list of books below. Bold the ones you’ve read, italicize the ones you want to read, cross out the ones you won’t touch with a 10 foot pole, put a cross (+) in front of the ones on your book shelf, and asterisk (*) the ones you’ve never heard of.


1. The Da Vinci Code (Dan Brown) (Truthfully I might have read it if everyone hadn't told me that I HAD TO READ THIS RIGHT THIS SECOND BECAUSE IT'S THE BEST BOOK IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. In other words, over-hyped to the point that I really don't want to touch it with a 10 foot pole. )
