Strike-through = unfinished
Underlined = re-reads.

(And because a book is struck-through doesn’t necessarily mean that I didn’t like it. It’s possible that I didn’t like it, but it could also be that it was a library book and was due, or that I wasn’t in the mood for that style of book, or wanted to change book format, or any number of reasons. I just didn’t finish it.)
