LibraryThings “most often marked unread” books meme

What we have here is the top 106 books most often marked as “unread” by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded. Bold the ones you’ve read, I'm going to italicize the ones I have sitting around waiting to be read.
Somehow I'm one book short! Oh well, I found this at Tammy's Book Nook and decided to play.
