100+ Reading Challenge 2009

J. Kaye over at J. Kaye’s Book Blog is hosting the 100+ Reading Challenge for 2009. This challenge appeals to me for many reasons. For one, you do not need to know what books you plan to read ahead of time. Another plus is that all books count. Sound good? For more info click here.
