Kathy (bookgoddess1969) Ok, last year I succeeded in many ways w/ my 2010 challenge, but didn't reach the finish line on others. Let's try again:

Read 100 books in 2011.(Unfortunately, I think I've bitten off more than I could chew. Last year I bypassed my goal of 60 by reading 74, but I think jumping to 100 is way too extreme. I don't want to take away my enjoyment by putting so much pressure on myself.)
Therefore, I'm changing my goal to 80.
Read at least 5 Stephen King books.
Read 5 classics.
Reread at least 3 favorites.
Read at least 5 books from series that I have meant to catch up on.
Read at least 5 non-fiction books.
Read at least 10 books that have been waiting on my TBR for 5 years or more!
Read at least 10 library books.

Nathalie (natjen29) And you're on a roll!
I'm finding that getting started again is a little difficult. Work is depleting my energy levels!

Kathy (bookgoddess1969) I know, Nath. Books are my way of escaping all that. Although sometimes there is just no escape....(cue creepy music!) lol
