I can't remember where I first saw this, but I thought it would be interesting to see how many I've read. Turned out I didn't do to badly...

Instructions:
Put an “X” next to the books you’ve read
Put a “+” next to the books you LOVE
Put a “#” next to the books you plan on reading
Tally your “X”s at the bottom
Share with your friends!
