Signed up for the 2010 100+ Book Challenge

For the second year, I'm signing up for J. Kaye's 2010 Book Challenge! Last year I exceeded my goal: I counted one hundred twenty-three books in 2009. And I missed some books, during the madness that was buying a house (July) and my usual November madness, so I know I read at least one hundred twenty-five; probably more. Thinking about it, it had to be more, because I certainly read more than four books in November!

I loved doing this; I always read tons of books, but I never really remember when I read what. This took care of that problem! (Well, for the most part…)

I had a bunch of books I never finished reading this year. So I'm going to set those aside, to either add to the abandoned list or start over with later. Well, I finished up the last chapter of Feet of Clay at 2 am on New Year's Day, so that will count for last year. :)

If you want to join me, sign up at J. Kaye's blog!

By the way, books marked with an asterisk are audiobooks.
