Because Oneofhismoms wants to know...

I saw this meme on several blogs, but I figured nobody cared what I have read. (Okay, I admit I created the "What Lo's Reading" link; I figure books sometimes spark conversation, and indeed they have. But what I have read in the past?)

But now I have been tagged, sort of, so here you go.

The Instructions:
1. Bold what you have read.
2. Italicize those you started but couldn’t finish.
3. Strike through what you couldn’t stand.
4. Add an asterisk to those you’ve read more than once.
5. Underline those on your to-read list.
6. ? for can’t remember if I ever tried to read it or not.

You couldn't finish Beloved? What, did your copy fall down an elevator shaft or something? Anywho, thanks for humoring me!

Firstly, I see that you have a similar book list to me. Also that you are interested in artificial insemination. I used to work on an artificial insemination ranch (it's on my blog). Anyway I am trying to build up contacts / links with people who have similar interests as me (your book list is at least similar).
If you are interested, let me know. If not, sorry to disturb.
