2011 100+ Reading Challenges

I'm doing two 100+ Reading Challenges this year. No, not reading 200 books, just tracking in two different places. I'm sure I'll also do some short-term challenges too, but to kick off 2011...


I joined the GoodReads 2011 Reading Challenge and set a goal of 100 books. I like this site because I can see what my friends are reading and liking.

To participate, go sign up for a GoodReads account. join the challenge, then track your reading.

GoodReads thinks I only read 33 books last year. Hah! Guess I need to do better about tracking over there.


I'm also doing this one at My Overstuffed Bookshelf, because I like the button. Come join me!

Sometimes I never get around to writing a full review. So, here's a quick rating system: 0 = HATED. Could not even finish it. (These books I don't bother to put on the list here.)
1 = Didn't like. Cannot recommend to others.
2 = Didn't like—but other people might.
3 = Ambivalent. Liked some things about it; not others. Probably won't read again.
4 = Liked. May read again sometime.
5 = Loved! Own or want to own; will read again and again.
