As noted earlier, I’m part of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Masterworks Review blog, and they’ve come up with an interesting meme, how many of these have been read? What I've bolded are books read and italics means I own it, but I’ve been meaning to read it. This list also includes new Masterwork releases coming out later this year and the first section of roman numerals of the list are a special run of hardcovers in the series, which are also in the numbered series.

So what's my count? 15 read, with a couple that I own. Hopefully, I’ll be getting to the two books of my own, Flowers for Algernon and Last and First Men, soon, after I finish up a couple of other things, but when they’re done, they’ll be up on the SF and Fantasy Materworks Reading Blog.
Bit of an edit here, 6 or more months on. I never actually ended up getting around to finishing or reviewing either book that had been my assignment - something I've been unhappy about, but more pressing matters have come up. Hopefully though, I'll be able to get to some of them at some point in the future!
