A Meme

I've decided that I'll do a meme that Don, Looney, and Paula have done. This is the inaugural meme for my blog, and I think it's appropriate since I love to read. Take the list below, paste it into your own blog, put READ next to those you've read, WANT TO next to those you are interested in, AGAIN & AGAIN next to those you've read and can't stop, TRIED next to those you started and gave up on, and leave blank those you don't care to read. I'll put a short editorial next to some of those I've read.

I also loved Gatsby, even though I had to read it three or four times in school/college.

I've seen this meme before and what stikes me about it is the curious selection of books on it...and not on it.
