My 100 Books for 2010!

So some of you may know that I have been tracking my books for this year for a challenge with my fellow TriangleMommies that we're doing over at Too lazy to link that, if you don't know what it is check out my bookshelf on the right-hand side of my blog! 

Anyway, I found this challenge again, I think it's the same host as last year, so I figured what the heck, I'll post the info, and link up, and eventually track all my books for 2010 on there, aside from on my shelf. Make sense? Good -- let's roll!

Here are the "rules" for the 100 books challenge:

1. The goal is to read 100 or more books. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

2. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Manga, Graphic Novels, Library books, Novellas, Young Reader, Nonfiction –
as long as the book has an ISBN or equivalent or can be purchased as such, the book counts.

What doesn't count: Individual short stories or individual books in the Bible.

3. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

4. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

5. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010. Books started before the 1st do not count.

6. When you sign up under Mr. Linky, put the direct link to your post where your books will be listed. Include the URL to this post so that other viewers can find this fun challenge. If you’d prefer to put your list in the sidebar of your blog, please leave your viewers the link to the sign up page. Again, so viewers can join the challenge too.

  1. Can I add my own personal favourite here? Here it is ..... It's an amazing book based on holocaust thought it doesn't appear to be so.

  2. What!?!? Only two in common (#17 and #18)! I'll have to look in to this, but have probably forgotten most of what I've read already this year!

    I just finished My Summer of Southern Discomfort....little less fluff than usual, but close enough...I enjoyed it!

  3. This sounds cool! I should go thru my books and see what I've read so far...

  4. Oh my gosh, I haven't read one thing from your list!

  5. I see quite a few books on your list that interest me and I've said I'll read someday.

    I remember the days when I could get through a whole book in a day or two. I WILL find that time again someday!
