As seen at Redzils's: The BBC Book List

Instructions:
1) Look at the list and put an ‘x’ after those you have read.
2) Add a ‘+’ to the ones you LOVE. (Redzils didn't do this, and neither will I. What I WILL do is put a + on those I've read more than once)
3) Star (*) those you plan on reading.(Redzils didn't do this, and neither will I)
