Challenge Details from Book Chick City:
  • Timeline: 01 Jan 2011 – 31 Dec 2011
  • Rules – Read 100 or more books in 2011
  • All books can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.
  • Only print books and ebooks count (no audiobooks).
  • You can join anytime between now and the later part of next year.
  • You can also follow each other’s progress and chat about the VC books you read on twitter too – just use #100BooksInAYear 🙂

I will keep track of my books read here.

Last but not least I am signing up for the WordPress PostADay challenge. The goal is to post something everyday! I know this will be challenging, but I am going to try to keep up. Hopefully I will have lots of reviews to post to go with my reading challenges.

Happy New Year!
