Lisa So in an online book club that I am in we have a author challenge going that we have to read a book in which the author's name ends with a different letter from the alphabet. I joined late in the year and so I will be doing the challenge from the start next year. So I will say that I will readat least 26 books next year.Probably will read more, but will start Jan 1 2008. Since that should be easy enough I will make it harder by reading from at least 10 different genres of books. For example...historical fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, biography, self help, chic lit,classic fiction, mystery, horror or thriller, book to movie, young adult fiction....
(I know I'm missing some, any ideas on more/different genres???/)

Lisa I think I will add another part to my challenge. Since my to-read list is getting so long here on good reads I will try to read as many of these as possible.
