Recommended Reading

I got this from Mike over at Emerging Pensees.

Here's how you play. Take a look and see which ones you’ve read. Then, if you’re a blogger, post it on your blog. If you play, leave me a comment so that I can come visit!
Here’s what you do:
* Bold the ones you’ve read.
* Italicize the ones you want to read.
* Leave in normal text the ones that don’t interest you.
* Put in ALL CAPS those you haven’t heard of.
* Put an asterisk (*) by the ones you recommend.
* Put a plus (+) next to the ones you've seen the movie or TV show of.
* At the end of the list, add one more fiction book that you've read and would highly recommend.
