About my library"Reread": books that I've read more than once

"unfinished": some books take me a long time to read but I do expect to finish them.

"Unread": some are in the pile beside my bed, and others are stashed away for my next holiday because I know I will read them. I've noticed a lot of the unread are classics that I've picked up from bargain bookshops with the idea that I must read these books, but don't get around to it.

"Unreadable": those which are just so poorly written that I have no interest in persevering.

"Wow": Books which made me stop and think, maybe even take notes, or find their way into my journal because of the thoughts that have bubbled up.
