Just for fun

Blog meme borrowed from Emma at Wheelchair Princess. I've read a lot in the past year, just not these books. I do have a lot of unfinished books--sometimes other responsibilities call mid-way through. Oh, the guilt!

Bold is read in full
Italic is partially read but unfinished
Anything bold or italic with an asterisk was read at school
And this time round anything in blue be it bold or italic has had it’s status change in the last year.

White Teeth and White Fang are different books. White Teeth is by Zadie Smith and is quite famous. I think it's so called contemporary literally and is meant to be good but I've never read it.

Hmm, hadn't heard of that one--I'll have to read the review on Amazon.
