On the subject of not reading books, commenter Jim Barnett has an excellent idea:

How about a new category: LR, for "Livres que je regrette d’avoir lus" – books I have regretted reading. I’d put Nabokov in that category – "The Gift" was just the sort of prissy, self-satisfied blather that I had always suspected Nabokov had produced. I should have known better and left it as an LE [a book you have heard discussed], but I foolishly took it on a trip and got stuck reading it.
