Reading, Writing, and The Search for Buried Gems of Literature

100+ Reading Challenge January 11, 2010

This year I’ve decided to track my reading more.  To help me–or perhaps motivate me–I’ll be taking part in “J. Kaye’s Book Blog: New 2010 Reading Challenge: 100+ Reading Challenge.”

Here are the rules as per J. Kaye’s Reading Blog:
I. The goal is to read 100 or more books.  Anyone can join.

II. 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.)

III. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

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