I've been rather terrible at reading since I've been home. I can read for the entire morning, but I'll still think that I've done 'nothing' and I dislike the feeling and have ~been avoiding it. Only when I read at home, though.
Bold the ones you've read, underline the ones you read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish.

I'll underline if I've only read them for school and the *s are if I own & wish to read but haven't yet.
