100 Books in a Year Reading Challenge 2011

In 2010, I decided about halfway through the year that I wanted to try to read at least 100 books.  This was slightly ambitious of me, since I had spent the first half of the year reading books that were 700+ pages and did so at a leisurely pace.  I made it to 91.  I guess it wasn't a poor performance, but to come so close and not make it was sort of (very) annoying!  This year, I am participating in the 100 Books in a Year Reading Challenge over at Book Chick City.  I am hoping that this will keep me motivated to exceed my goal this year.  There are SO many good books coming out this year that I am looking forward to reading.  So it shouldn't be too difficult.  :)

  1. I considered this challenge, but 100 books in a year seems overwhelming. I don't think I could do it with my schoolwork. But I will be cheering you on- so GO JENNY!

  2. I made the resolution to read more, but I can't cram a hundred books in a year, especially with all my schoolwork. However, I will be looking forward to those hundred reviews that you will have for us on your blog. Good luck!!! :D

  3. I'm joining! Thanks for the heads up!
