100+ Reading Challenge

January 1 – December 31, 2008


Yes!!! I did it…I read 101 books in 2008, surpassing the magic number of 100 by ONE BOOK. This was a goal last year and I fell short by 5 books, but I was not to be denied this year. YAY! To see my list with links to reviews and ratings, visit this post.


Okay, yes, I know I just wrote a post saying I was overwhelmed and would be eliminating some of my reading challenges. But this one isn’t really a new challenge – I had a goal in 2007 to read 100 books and missed it. I said to my bookie friends (you all remember this, right?) that I would be shooting to read 100 books in 2008. So this just makes it formal. The challenge is hosted by J.Kaye at this site. And there is a Yahoo group too (but I won’t be joining that because I truly am trying to cut down on all the groups I’m in – really!).

I’m keeping track of the books I read in this post.

    Can you hear me laughing all the way from Florida?

    No laughing allowed, Jill 🙂 You’ll really laugh when you know I am toying with the suspense-thriller challenge because I have about 30 of these types of books on my TBR mountain and it seems like a good way to read them. So far, I’m resisting…but for how long can I hold out?!?!? Oh, I am such a challenge addict…it is hopeless.

    I don’t how all of you do it! Good luck with the challenge (and who cares if you sign up for too many, right?? right??). Have fun!

    Well, I’m not so sure I’m being successful, Trish 🙂 But, I *am* having fun!

  5. Congratulations and Happy New Year! I read 80ish books last year, but I’m not woman enough to take on the 100+ challenge yet. I applaud you.

Having such wonderful reader friends to cheer me on made this challenge easier 🙂
