I'm getting a head start on 2009 by setting up this page to list the books I read. Usually, I keep the list in a pretty book that I have had going for about 10 years now. I'll still use that book, but I am going to keep track of my progress here too. Mostly because I am signing up for the 100+ Reading Challenge this year. And just why am I doing that? I avoid reading challenges because they make me nervous. And I already have 100 different reading lists going over on Lists of Bests. And I really do not want to read 100 books just to say I read 100 books. But, the 100+ challenge isn't really like other challenges. I mean, I usually read more than 100 books each year anyway (125 or so this year), so officially adopting this as a "challenge" should not make me fussy. And some of my favorite book bloggers are participating. And maybe I'll discover some other good book blogs. And . . . and . . . and . . . And maybe it is just an excuse to make another list. So this is the spot where I will list the books I read in 2009.
