Book list meme

I saw this book list meme at Cvillewords and thought I'd play along.

Directions:
Look at the list of books below. Bold the ones you’ve read, italicize the ones you want to read, cross out the ones you won’t touch with a 10 foot pole [I'll put an X in front of those], underline the ones on your book shelf [I can't seem to underline, either, so I'm going to color those titles purple], and asterisk* the ones you’ve never heard of.

I don't know where you are in Virginia but Diana Gabaldon is going to be at the Central Library in Virginia Beach on April 18th, you have to call to register.

Unfortunately too far to travel to Va Beach. I'd love to meet her sometime though!
