Reading Is Good For You

Book Reviews, Literary News, and Thoughts on Life

2010 100+ Reading Challenge

 
 

This great challenge is hosted by J-Kaye and you can head over here for details and to sign up.

I figured it would be easier to keep track of the books I will be reading/ have read in a page  rather than digging up a post, so here we are.  

  • Some of the books listed are part of a series (which I’ve noted with an asterisk), so if I decide to continue with the series, I’ll begin listing those books under the first one.
  • For my benefit, I’ve included where I will get a copy of each book (ie. the library, inter-library loan, or my personal library).
  • Any reviews I write will be attached in a link.
