Books are delicious

Ok folks, I have a paper to write and several mad headaches, so something something something, this is a list of books I got third-hand off Jane's blog, and you have to:

Bold the ones you've read, italicize the ones you started but couldn't finish, use red text on the ones you really sort of hated, put an asterisk* next to the ones you've read more than once, and use blue text on the ones on your own personal To Be Read list.
