Reading Challenge Updates

Time to post my reading list for 2010. (Well, past time, really!) I enjoyed keeping track of my reading this past year. Here are the Reading Challenges I’ve signed up for in 2011, since they can overlap, anyway! I think the different categories help keep things interesting!

Wrapping up the 100+ Reading Challenge for 2010, here is my final list. It’s not as accurate as I would like. I strongly suspect there are books I read that I forgot to add to my list… and I know there are a few on here that I didn’t actually finish. I hope to do a better job of keeping track in 2011.
