Humiliation by Numbers

In yesterday's post, Humiliation made Simple, I asked everyone who wanted to join in a game of Humiliation to leave a comment with the name of a book they had never read. Today, we have part 2 of the game. (You can participate even if you don't have an entry in the running.)

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.

Poll #444848 Humiliation by Numbers

(Edit: I caught an error in the poll. lemur_catta, NOT rhiannon76, entered Sir Gawain and the Green Knight into competition. My apologies.)

The winner will be whoever is ahead as of 5 pm EST on Monday. It might well be obvious who's winning well before that, but if it's not, that's when a narrow lead will matter most. May the worst-read contestant win.

I didn't say people couldn't double up on books, so I allowed multiple entries for one book. Anyone organizing future rounds of this game might want to consider whether or not they want everyone to have unique entries.
