100 Book Challenge in 2010

It's 2010! And it's time for another book challenge.

Last year, I read 107 books, which I am very happy about. Especially considering how many other things I had going on.

But now, it's time to set myself another challenge. I think this year is going to be plenty busy, so I am going to keep the same goal: 100 books this year.

Count me in! Not sure if I'll get through that many but I love a challenge. : )

Considering my goal was to read 50 books in 2009...and I FAILED miserably...I better not even try for 100...

Christina Farley said...

I haven't counted how many books i read last year but I think it was around 50. But there is no way I could do 100. I wish!

Sherrie Petersen said...

I didn't hear about last year's challenge until about March, but I still read 85 books last year. I'm hoping to make it to 100 this year.

Mary Witzl said...

I tried to count how many books I read last year, but I kept forgetting to add books to my list. I'm pretty sure I came close to 100, anyway...

This year, I'm going to try to keep count once again. The best thing about this is that it helps me remember authors' names. And it disciplines me too, trying to do this. I need all the discipline I can get.

Well, let's see, last year I squeeked in at 46 books I think. If I make it to 50 (about 1 book a week) I'll be doing very well. So that's my goal...50 books. And picture books don't count right? :O

kah said...

I'm going to join you in that goal of 100. I think I read about 50 in 2009 but I didnt count so I cant be sure. I know I can do better this year. :)
Happy new year!

Hat down, Tabitha! wow!
My goal is to read at least 2 MG/YA a week. We will see if I keep up. :)

I've decided to join your challenge.. Read 6 so far.

I just came across your 2010 challenge to read 100 books. I think it's a great challenge, anything to motivate people to read more. It will be hard since I am trying to finish my novel, but I love to read and I love a challenge. Circumstances have encouraged me to take the summer off, so I won't be working. I have a question or two. (1) Is it too late to join (2) Do the books I have read thus far in 2010, but prior to signing up for the challenge count towards my ultimate goal of 100?

Love your blog

Melissa, it's never too late to sign up. :) And feel free to count any and all books read in 2010 so far. :)
