'The BBC believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here' - Thursday, 26 February 2009 at 04:53

What can I say - I love lists, and I love ticking them. So, 41 down, 59 to go... Actually, a little less, as I've read a few more of these since I first did this.
-_-_-

Because, what else would I be doing at 4.39 in the a.m...?

Instructions:

Copy this note and then go to 'write a new note' and paste into your notes then...

Look at the list and put an 'x' after those you have read once. Enter a number for the number of times you read something. Make sure you delete my x'S!

When you've finished, tag 10 people to do it too, and put your total at the bottom.
