Instructions: Bold the ones you've read. Italicize the ones you've been wanting/might like to read. ??Place question marks by any titles/authors you've never heard of. Put an asterisk if you've read something else by the same author.And, I'm going to add another one: put a + beside anything you add.**Edited to add, this meme came from My So Called (ABD) Life by way of The Clutter Museum.
