in What I am reading today

100_Reading_ChallengeI’m happy to say I will be participating in J.Kaye’s 100+ Reading Challenge for the upcoming year. It will be nice to whittle away at my TBR pile (or piles, as they have quickly become), and get to see what the other participants are reading too! This will be my official count down page, as I log each book I read. Of course, I intend on reviewing every one (or at least the majority of them).

May your New Year be lavished with happiness, health, and plenty of reading time!

Wish me luck :)

You know I am wishing you luck, I’m doing it too!

Welcome to 100+ Reading Challenges. I am so glad you have decided to join us in the fun. 2010 is going to be a great year in reading. I can just feel it!

I can’t wait! What a way to kick of the New Year. So fun to have a friend to read with (and we’ll probably make a bunch of new ones too!) :)

Whaaaat! 100 for 2010. I thought 1 book per week challenge is way over. To think that will be like 52 books for this year. But 100 for this year?? well I have a long way to go. If I won’t include short stories so far I was able to read 14 books from Sherrilyn Kenyon and 6 books from Sidney Sheldon. And I’m currently reading books by Christine Feehan. Well it’s never too late to join right? Hope I could catch up… :-(

Ya know Tracy, I don’t think I’m gonna make it ;) While last year I easily read that many (maybe even over 100), my work this year has kept me busier than usual, and I haven’t been able to read as much as I’d like to. But it’s the “attempt” that counts. At least I’m having fun each time I add a new one to my list.

I hope I could have read about this challenge last year so I could have updated and properly organize my “book calendar”. I know I’m way behind you guys but will surely kick off with any challenge you guys are up to next year.
