Picking up on a theme by Jill

While most of my blogging friends have petered out, Jill remains strong and constant. She both inspires and badgers me to keep writing. Her most recent post introduced me to a new social site created just for bookworms like me, Librarything, which looks promising, but I'm just figuring it out. It also contained a list of books that Jill has marked:

Bold = I've read it for fun
Underline = I read it for school (I'll use a %)
Italics = I started it but didn't finish
Asterisk = I own it, but haven't read it

Well, Jill colour coded hers as she's oh so clever now that she can html
I'm too tired to do that, but I will mark the same list just because I'm a big book nerd and I like stuff like this.

you had to read The Prince in school? Like in education somewhere? I wish I had to read the prince for school. Come to think of it, I wish I had taken a read ed degree instead of that SFU silliness . .
