Katie (hockeygoddess) | 79 comments A new year has begun and I am looking forward to my reading goal of 50 books between January 1 and December 31, 2010! In addition (not separately but adding a bit more fun to the mix), I'm going to try to complete BOTH the A-Z Author Challenge and the A-Z Title Challenge in 2010.

I shall track all three challenges below. I will not list a book until I have completed reading it (I'm not going to include audiobooks at all unless I get desperate) and I am only counting books I have started and finished during 2010.

To spur me on, I have decided that I will set aside $1 for every book I swapped for/got for free, $2 for every library book, and $3 for every book from my personal library into a Book Jar to be used for book splurging once I reach my goal! Wish me luck!

Katie (hockeygoddess) | 79 comments Wow, I have been on a roll this week...this is why I LOVE vacation!! And I'm only adding $1.50 to the book bank for this latest read because I only bought it about two weeks ago, so since it is technically part of my personal library but hasn't been there all that long, I figure it only gets partial credit!

Katie (hockeygoddess) | 79 comments Thought I could get one more done before year's end, but work would not cooperate. So 15 it is. A sad book year for me, but I did do better on the A-Z Author Challenge than I did last year:)
