50* Books in 2010 Challenge
« on: January 01, 2010, 11:23:25 AM »
FOR THE READING GEEKS&JPHiPSTERS!!!

This is like the movie challenge thread that we have, but for books!

50 is just to have a number on the title, but you're free to set your own limit however low or high you like (but still remember to make it a challenge!). :)

Reserve a post in this thread to list the books you've read this year (January, February, etc.)!
You can also post in general about the books that you are reading or have read.

Re-reading books counts :3

LET'S DO IT!!

I don't even know what target to set. I have 15 books I've bought and haven't started yet and more that I want to read. Do graphic novels count?

I'm just gonna set a goal for 24. Hopefully I'll go past that.

Hopefully page count isn't a factor.  No copies of Crime & Punishment, to punish me.

January
01. "Carmilla - The Return" - Kyle Marffin.

February
02. "Doce Cuentos Peregrinos" - Gabriel García Márquez.
