MizB is hosting this challenge again. I had a great time reading 50 books from my shelves this year, but the challenge needs to be up’d. I will have a goal of 75 this year (I would love to say 100 but that would mean only about 30-50 books from the library or friends).

  • Pick a number of books you’d like to read in one year
  • Choose those books from your OWN collection
  • Read them between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010
