BBC Book List

I wonder whether only having seen the movie / miniseries also counts?
Instructions:
1) Look at the list and put an ‘x’ after those you have read. (screw the x, I’ll bold those I’ve read and italicize those of which I only read part.)
2) Add a ‘+’ to the ones you LOVE.
3) Star (*) those you plan on reading.
