Here’s how it works:
The Big Read says that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they’ve printed.
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Make the ones you loved obnoxiously large
4) Reprint this list so we can try and track down these people who’ve read only 6 or less and make them read.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go ahead. Judge me. I'm actually slightly dissapointed in their selection. They're missing some amazing books on here. Like The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom, The Scarlet Letter (I forgot who wrote it. Oops), Briar Rose by Jane Yolen, any number of Terry Pratchett books... and I could go on and on, but I won't.
