Ones that are struck-through were unfinished, and the underlined ones were re-reads. (And because a book is struck-through doesn’t necessarily mean that I didn’t like it. It could be that it was a library book and was due, or that I wasn’t in the mood for that style of book, or any number of reasons. I just didn’t finish it.)
