  This is my second year in joining the 100+ Reading Challenge. When I first joined I didn't have a blog, but I kept a running list of all the titles I had read. The reason? I'm a book addict. I read for work, helping teachers navigate the large waves of YA literature, and to unwind especially when my brothers hog the tv by watching football. My goal for this year is to read up to 200 books. Currently, I'm at 226 and I have a few more to go before the year ends. I will be joining again for 2011, which I'm sure doesn't surprise my friends and colleagues. My goal for next year is to read 250 books. The 100+ Reading Challenge is hosted by Amy at My Overstuffed Bookshelf. She is challenging us to beat our record for 2010.

Here is some important information regarding the challenge:

  • The goal is to read 100 or more books.
  • Anyone can join.
  • You don't need a blog to participate. Posting on GoodReads or wherever you post your reviews is good enough.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
  • Books started before the January 1st do not count.
  • You can join at anytime.

 To learn more and sign up, go here. I will list my books that I finished in 2011 here, but you can always find the reviews on my review index pages located on the right hand side bar.
