2010 100+ Reading Challenge

J. Kaye of J. Kaye's Book Blog is hosting the 100+ Reading Challenge again in 2010.
J. Kaye says:

1. 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.

2. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader, Nonfiction – as long as the book has an ISBN or equivalent or can be purchased as such, the book counts.

3. 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.

4. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

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

6. 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.

I did this for 2009 and I am very close to 100. Even if I don't make it, it is still more books than I have ever read in one year so I am very proud of myself irregardless! So my goal 2010 is to read at least as many as this year and hopefully get to 100! I will keep track of all books read (reviewed or not) on this post. I will also keep track of my progress in my sidebar throughout the year. I promise to get all of the books that have reviews linked up at some point! :)
