2009: Challenges – 100+ Reading Challenge

100_Reading_Challenge The 2010 100+ Reading Challenge is hosted by J.Kaye. Here are the guidelines:

  • The goal is to read 100 or more books. Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate. –Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post. To learn how to sign up without having a blog, click here.
  • Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Library books, Young Reader, Nonfiction — as long as the book has an ISBN or equivalent or can be purchased as such, the book counts.
  • 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.
  • Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
  • Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010. Books started before the 1st do not count.
  • 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.

Sign up is at J. Kaye’s Book Blog! My list will be below — I’m choosing an extremely (for me) ambitious goal of 144 books, because I am participating in a challenge to read 144 books on GoodReads.
