A Rare Meme Sighting

I found this at Amy's and didn't feel like doing it at my usual meme spot.
Jenica (at Madstop Reading) put this one out, having read about it at Amanda's. "This is a list of the top 106 books most often marked “unread” by LibraryThing users. The rules: bold the ones you’ve read, underline the ones you read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn’t finish. Pop a note in the comments if you’ve done this one (and help me keep the dream alive)."
Just to be annoying, I'm adding a * next to those I loved and an ^ by the ones I hated.
