100+ Reading Challenge (2010)

2010 Reading Challenge: 100+ Reading Challenge

Alright, so obviously this is the first challenge I would jump in for. Actually, I am hoping to hit 144, which makes a nice number, since it translates to 12 books a month (Thanks to Crystal @ Goodreads for spotting this). This will be a big challenge for me, but I should be able to cross 100. This year, with just the half year of reading and loads of grad work, I was able to read 50.

This challenge is being hosted by J. Kaye @ J. Kaye's Book Blog.

Challenge Guidelines:
1. The goal is to read 100 or more books.
2. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Manga, Graphic Novels, Library books, Novellas, Young Reader, Nonfiction – as long as the book has an ISBN or equivalent or can be purchased as such, the book counts.
What doesn't count: Individual short stories or individual books in the Bible.
4. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
5. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010. Books started before the 1st do not count.

So, did you join this challenge? If not, sign-up here.

My final tally:


79 / 100 books. 79% done!
