Larry Hosken: New: Fake BBC Book Meme

I got tagged on Facebook to fill in the fake "BBC Book Meme". (It's a real meme, just not really from the BBC.) The key... x: I read it; x+: I read it and loved it; * I plan to read it; =8 tied for 8th place in the Guardian's poll of "Books you can't live without". This meme's notation doesn't have a way to say "I read this book and I regretted doing so," but it could use one. I wasn't sure what to do about Crime & Punishment—I read it to the end, but only the odd-numbered pages. Whatever.
