2010 100+ Reading Challenge

J. Kaye is once again hosting the 100+ Reading Challenge.  As she says, “the goal is to read 100 or more books. Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate.”

You can find the full details of the 2010 100+ Reading Challenge here.

I’ll update this post as I read and review books in 2010.  Note that you don’t have to review a book for it to count toward the challenge (that’s a different challenge!).  As I did in 2009, I plan to review each book that I read.
