Top 100 Books Checked Out of the Library But Not Read

In my trolling through the book blogs today while trying to keep my muscles from atrophying at work, I stole this interesting topic from Eleanor’s Trousers, who took it from another blog, who took it from another blog, and so on and so on… I have no idea where the list originated. Like Eleanor et al, I’ve bolded the books I’ve read and italicized the ones I’m interested in reading. And since I couldn’t tell from the earlier lists if they were actually in any order, my list is alphabetized.
