100 Books? 200 Books? Are We All Insane?

Because I have thousands of books on my TBR list, with more being added every day, I thought J. Kaye's new challenge - 100 Books - would be a good one for me. It's simply to read 100 books this year, which I was planning to do anyway. In case you didn't know, I keep a running list of books read in 2008 at the very bottom of my blog. I'm not doing too shabby so far, so hopefully this challenge really won't be much of a challenge at all. Thanks to J. Kaye for hosting!

If reading 100 books in a year simply isn't enough for you, you should check out this crazy chick - she's made a goal to read 200 books this year. I found this link at Sam Houston's blog, and I've enjoyed Mandi's posts so far. I'll be interested to see if she makes her goal.

Speaking of reading, I'm going to settle in bed and read People of the Book. It's excellent!

  3. I really like this challenge since I don't have to do anything I wasn't already planning to do. We'll see how tough it is to get 100 books in a year. It might be more difficult than we think!

  4. I recently learned that if you have a passion in life, it makes you younger. So go for it!

  5. I've signed up for this challenge. I read more than 200 books in both of the last two years, but I am really hoping to get a new job where I don't spend 15+ hours a week on a train, and therefore don't have as much reading time!

Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
