Let the Humiliation begin

Update: Thank you to everyone who voted! The results of the game are now posted here.

Thank you to all of you brave enough to publicly compete in a game of Humiliation. Now, it's time to vote, and find out just which book(s) are the most and least read among the entrants. (You can participate even if you don't have an entry in the running. I'm afraid you don't be able to vote if you don't have a LiveJournal account - that's just the way LJ polls work.)

Go through the following list and check the boxes next to ALL of the books you have read. What counts as reading a book is ultimately up to you, but here are some guidelines: A few chapters doesn't count. Skipping just the epilogue does. (See this post for the full rules of the game.)
