another meme?

Where have my standards of refusing to do them gone to? however, since I am a geek inside, and I saw this on Here in Idaho…. couldn’t resist:

Bold those you’ve read.
Italicize books you have started but couldn’t finish.
Add an asterisk* to those you have read more than once.
Underline those on your TBR list.
