Flashback Challenge!! (2010)




I've been planning to re-read a few books during the next year. Now with Aarti @ BOOKLUST and Kristen M @ We Be Reading hosting this challenge, I guess this is one more I can add to my challenge kitty. LOL!

Challenge Guidelines:
1. The Flashback Challenge will run from January 1, 2010 - December 31, 2010.
2. You can do mini-challenges too!  These are:
    - Re-read a favorite book from your childhood
    - Re-read a book assigned to you in high school
    - Re-read a book you loved as an adult

For now, I plan to read the Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings series. I plan to sign-up at the Literati level, and read over 6 books. If you expect to re-read some books, go to Flashback challenge

Update (Dec 27, 2010): I expected to finish this challenge, but I'm at least 2 books short. Oh well! Here's what I did read:
1. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
3. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
