Meme: Top 100 YA Books & Request for Weekly Book Meme Links

* Please see my request for links to weekly book blogger memes at the bottom of this post.

In my recent post on followers I talked about Memes. This fits the true definition a meme.  You cut and paste the list into your blog and bold the books you have read.  I have no idea where this list originated.  In the past there have been several other versions of this list floating around.  I added the list that was floating around last year so you can see how with memes things change and morph over time.
