On my personal challenge blog, I joined a "Read 100 Books in 2010" challenge. I don't have any illusions that I'll make it to 100 but I want to see how far I can go. I'm in some other reading challenges but they can all crossover so it's not as big a deal as it seems.

I thought it might be fun if we keep track of how many books we read here on FV. I'd be happy to keep a running total here (with titles and authors, if possible) in this post if anyone wants to give it a shot.

No rules, any kind of book ~ dead tree books, ebooks, audio, tech manuals, cookbooks, YA books, if it's a book and you read it, it counts :)

Starts January 1, 2010 and any book read between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010 counts :D

Anyone interested?

Does sound like a good idea.

When we count everything, I bet we would be surprised on how many we read. For me anyway. I am reading two dog training manuals now, while I watch tv, but don't count them in the book challenge.

I'm in! I have tons of books here that I want to read, then donate to the library for their sale. I don't want to go to the library to get more books til I get the ones I have out of the house! I doubt I'll read 100, probably close to 15 or 20 though.

Mee, mee ,meee! I want to join! LOL! I love reading and have a ton of books here and from the library that I need to catch up on and start!!! Not sure even how to estimate how many books I'll read in a year! I go through spurts where I read alot for a couple weeks then I'll taper off and so on, so it's hard to tell! But it will be fun to keep track of!

I'm currently trying to read a book each month. Seems sort of sad compared to 100 books in a year. Still, I'd love to share what I'm read in 2010. Perhaps this will encourage me to read all those books just wait on the shelves.

Count me in...book reading is fun and relaxing and also provides me with some 'leave me alone I'm reading' QT with myself and keeping others at bay ;)

I have no clue how many books I can read in a year this will be fun too see.

I would love to join this. I probably won't make the 100 either because right now I'm into Victorian novels and some of those are LONG! But I agree it will be fun to see how many books I can read. I will probably be surprised. I'll add it to my signature now.

I am in also!

My "goals list" says 3 per month .. 1 fiction, 1 non-fiction, 1 mystery. I am going to go with that PLUS I have 3 text books that I will read starting Jan 11th.

I will also count my Emily Dickinson poetry book. It comes out to about 2 poems per night for the year. Oh, and my Breathnach book as well! LOL

I do the same thing, hp.

I read 14 books last January but in July I was probably lucky to have read 2! As long as I stay off our library web site I do average. If I get a bunch on hold and then they tell me to come get them, which happened at the first of the year, well, then I turn into a reading fool! :laugh:
